Reviewed Lobster Mac and Cheese
"Use another recipe. The cheese and mussels cost $40. A big disappointment.
Bobby usually gets it right but you should avoid this recipe if you're looking for anything that looks like baked mac & cheese. If you want a wet, cream sauce over pasta it may be for you but go with very low expectations. Especially so given the tremendous effort required to make one's own mussel broth.
Here's my issues:
1. Two lbs of mussels yielded only 1 cup broth NOT 3. Spending $15 for ne cup broth...really?
2. The dish came out wet, almost runny. Not like a baked mac & cheese texture.
3. Cut back the tarragon to 1/2 tablespoon or it will over power the cream sauce & lobster.
The best way I could use this wet dish was to bake it on plain pizza dough. A lobster Mac & cheese pizza. This was not that bad and dries out the sauce sufficiently especially tasty when drizzled with home-made lobster.
