News report in France claims to produce world’s best lobster

A news report on Le 20h, a French television show, claimed its country produces a better lobster than Canada’s East Coast. The segment shows a Parisian couple comparing a lobster from Breton and a Canadian Lobster. The couple enjoys a few bites, then deems the Canadian crustacean  to be less firm, and more watery. They describe the French lobster to be, “beaucoup plus fin,” a finer choice. Local lobster lovers like Louis Leger disagree. Leger owns the Moncton Fish Market, and guesses that if someone is choosing Eurpoean lobster over Maritime fare, they’ve got the wrong person in the kitchen. Leger also argues that if East Coast lobster isn’t so hot, why do Europeans eat so much of it? Read the story here 10:13
