DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the Parmesan, bread crumbs, and butter, blend thoroughly. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan.
  • In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions, and the peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 2 minutes, remove from the heat.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. With the machine running, add the eggs, one at a time, until incorporated. Beat in the cream, Gouda, and sauteed vegetables until fully incorporated, about 2 minutes.
  • Fold in the lobster meat and the parsley. Pour the filling into the prepared crust and bake until firm, about 1 hour.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature. If you refrigerate the cake before serving, allow to come to room temperature before serving.
  • To serve, cut the cake into wedges with a warm knife. Serve each wedge with the creme fraiche, sprinkled with parsley and onions. Garnish with a dollop of caviar.
