Food Adventures: Brooklyn Lobster Takedown

It was a fight to the death (for some lobsters, at least).

At September 18th’s Brooklyn Lobster Takedown at Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in Gowanus, homecooks battled head-to-head in a chance for glory—and some cool Anolon, Wüsthof, Cuisinart and Microplane cookware. Eleven contestants participated with crustacean-filled dishes, ranging from cold soup and dumplings, to sandwiches and decadent lobster ‘n’ grits. I got to judge the contestants. Here’s a peek into that ridiculously indulgent experience.
