Cooking Tip: Old time Maine cookbooks write about the preparation of the perfect Maine Lobster Stew. According to these long-time experts, stirring is most important in this masterpiece; otherwise it will curdle. The steps to success in the stew’s creation are:

1. The partial cooling before gently adding the milk a trickle at a time.
2. The constant stirring until the stew blossoms a rich salmon under your nose.
3. And finally the aging, since every hour that passes improves the flavor. Masters of Lobster Stew set aside 2 days for "aging", with a minimum period of 5 to 6 hours.
