Lobster is a festive treat, all buttery, sweet, and tender—and with these flash-frozen lobster tails, we’re now celebrating all the time. Particularly as we approach entertaining season, these are just the thing to have on-hand for last-minute gatherings. The tails are naturally processed to preserve the lobster’s sweet, fresh flavor. Simply defrost in the refrigerator and get cooking! We did, and we loved them: Josh Cohen, our test kitchen chef, cooked up these lobster tails with pasta and fennel. His verdict? “If I hadn’t cooked this dish myself, I’d never have known the lobster was previously frozen—and I’d never have known it was just tails.” A rave review!

Our Tips & Stories
How we'd use this beauty in our own homes.
Herbs all winter long—and next spring too.
Buck convention! Forget what you've been taught! Cut your avocado the wrong way!
Citrus are winter's glory, the bright spot of sunshine amongst a cellar's worth of dirt-covered root vegetables. There's a fantastically wide array of them, too -- so many that we're taking two weeks to cover them all. Stay tuned for tiny citrus next Friday, because today it's all about the big guns: orange clones, grapefruit's meaty predecessor, hard-to-find Bergamot, and everything in between. (Bonus points if you correctly identify all 8 varieties in the above photo. No peeking!)
