Lobster Slather by Gail is a great spread for a holiday party. My friend Gail writes the food column for the Falmouth and Mashpee Enterprise. She will be joining me here to share great recipes and creative ideas for entertaining. Gail and I became fast friends when she interviewed me for an article about Laureen's, the gourmet shop I started back in 1986. We've bonded over food and the friendship continues.
1/2 lb fresh cooked lobster meat
scant 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 lb whipped cream cheese
Chop the lobster meat into small dice and season with Old Bay; add mayonnaise to taste, cover, and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Bring back to room temperature and beat with the cream cheese; cover and refrigerate again for at least 8 hours. To serve, place in a pretty bowl and bring to room temperature; garnish with an orange nasturtium, if available, or a dark orchid blossom. Serve with crackers or buttered toasts on the side.
