Clinton’s favorite Lobster Special

chef_Guy-LogoChef Guy of the White House Chef Tour has prepared meals for world leaders and dignitaries at the White House for years. This particular recipe is a show stopper! It’s wonderful on a buffet or just a hot summer evening. The Clintons loved lobster but President Bush, Sr. did not.  This unique dish is a great recipe to make on the 4th of July for a delicious change of pace.
