Very Rich, Very Pricy, Very Good I have no idea where this originaly came from. I found it in my Dad's recipe collection. Hand written, but not in his hand.

This originally is an Emeril Lagasse recipe. A friend of mine had it at one of his restaurants and raved about it ever since so I searched it out when throwing a baby shower for her. The recipe didn't fail me. Everyone was bowled over by the flavor. I served it only with the creme fraiche. Another of the garnishes that Emeril uses is caviar. The recipe was very easy to follow. For future referenced - I bought a 1.6 lb lobster and got 1 cup of meat.
