Lobster College 2008

Lobster College Attendees enjoying Larry the Lobster Finger Puppets from Lobster Gram

Lobster College 2008 hosted by the Lobster Institute & Kenniston Hill Inn Bed & Breakfast is finally over and was a smashing success! Tickets sold out fast for this extended learning weekend that ran from September 18th-21st. "Lobster College Students" stayed at the historic Kenniston Hill Inn B&B, which is an actual Lobster Boat Builders Mansion. This 1786 mansion built by David Kenniston, a prominent shipbuilder and landowner is now wonderfully restored with 10 incredible guest rooms.

After the arrival and welcome session at the Inn, the real fun begins with the first lobster dinner! Because this is a Lobster Learning vacation, each lunch and dinner contains Maine's main export, the lovely Maine Lobster. The next few days are filled with fun, hands-on learning. Students visit an actual working Lobster Wharf to see how real lobster men pull up traps, and galvanize so many industries with one simple crustacean. Lectures and Lobster continue till graduation day when college attendees receive their diplomas and awards, and then it's back home to share the new found Lobster knowledge.

The most rewarding part of this long weekend, is knowing that the tuition costs go to help the Lobster Institute with their yearly fund raising. The Lobster Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to lobster education and sustainability. What better way to support such a great cause than to take part in an experience such as this.

When Lobster Gram got wind of the Lobster College, they wanted to help out the cause. After all, they too are dependent on Lobsters to make a living. Lobster Gram sent out an Email notification detailing the Lobster College to their customers and were able to get a few of their customers to fill the remaining positions! The day the email notification was sent out, so many visitors went to the the Lobster Institute site, their servers crashed (But not before selling out the class!)
All in all, Lobster College is a great example of how businesses of all kinds can work together toward common goals like preserving Maine Lobsters and all of the industries it supports.

Definitely the most interactive and creative gift we received

Maine Lobster, Steak and New England Clam Chowder from Lobster Gram
"...we had the lobsters last night and they were SO DELICIOUS!...Sarah's a big animal lover so I did the submerging (she did the trance-inducing massage) and we had the whole candle-lit, clam chowder, butter melting, shell cracking experience. What a great gift - definitely the most interactive and creative gift we received..."
Xander Berkeley (George Mason on Fox's "24")and Sarah Clarke (Nina Meyer on "24")

Thanks for an epicurean delight.

Tristan Lobster Tails from Lobster Gram
I just had to tell you that you absolutely made my birthday! My roommate and I have been trying different lobster tails from you (which you make so easy by offering sampler packages). We cook two different types of tails, carefully keeping track of which one is which. We then get half of each tail so we can do a direct comparison. I never realized how different they could be. So far we have come to the conclusion that we prefer the cold water lobster tails, especially the South African. For my birthday yesterday, my roommate sprang for a couple of Tristan lobster tails. We feasted on them, marveling on how sweet and tender they are. Each bite was better than the one before. Although we did dip them in melted butter, we both agreed that we could have happily eaten them au naturel. Needless to say, they are our new favorites, and we will look forward to enjoying them again on special occasions. Thanks for an epicurean delight.

Congratulations and continued success to your company.

The Filet Mignon Actually Does Melt in Your Mouth!

Wow, our Ship to Shore Gram dinner was OUTSTANDING! Thank you so much! It was packaged so well, and I really appreciated all of the easy directions. The filet actually does melt in your mouth!

A wonderful gift idea that we will recommend to everyone we know.

My husband & I received a Lobster Gram from our very dear friends for our 40th wedding anniversary. To make it the ultimate dining experience to match such a special gift, we set up the patio as "a feast for the eye". We enjoyed the "melt in your mouth" Filet Mignon and the fabulous lobster tails. We loved the gift and THANK YOU for the fantastic food and service. This is indeed a wonderful gift idea that we will recommend to everyone we know.
Thank you,
Al & Rosie Ferrell

"It was delivered right on time!"

I just ordered a Lobster Gram for a very very special person…It was delivered right on time and thoroughly enjoyed!! His name is Soren and he lives in Sparta NJ (see photo). Soren's co-owner, Deb, said:

"...once we got to the eating part, it was far too messy (and yummy) to try to use the camera. But I promise he did participate, very enthusiastically .. we even shared a baked potato with it. I wasn't sure if he would like it, but as soon as he tasted it he was crazed... the whole time I was cracking the next piece, he was on my leg scratching me with his paw, his "wild eyed" stare intently upon me, and big bubbles forming at the sides of his mouth..."

Rest assured I plan to use Lobster Gram again (for even my human friends).

"It was the best Lobster I have eaten since moving to Florida 30 years ago!"

Just the Lobsters with Two 1.5lb Live Maine Lobsters

Living in Florida I am accustomed to a large variety of fresh seafood but nothing can compare to the lobsters I received from you on July 26th. My husband chose this as a reward from his company because he knows of my love of Maine lobster. My daughter’s birthday was the 25th so we thought we would share it with her. It brought back such wonderful memories of summers spent in Maine with my grandparents! It was the best lobster I have eaten since moving to Florida 30 years ago. I have ordered Maine lobster in restaurants down here but it doesn’t compare to your product. And I have to say, I think you are generous on your weights. I hope to order from you again in the near future.

Lobster Romance for Valentines Day

My girlfriend Marci and I received a Lobster Gram gift certificate from my brother Christopher for Christmas and we decided to use it for Valentine's Day. We decided on the Lobsterpalooza package with two 1.5-lb lobsters. I ordered the package 2 days before Valentine's Day and everything showed up on time and professionally packaged. Our two "guests of honor" from Maine were perky and lively! I decided it would be fun to capture the experience on camera! I am sure that you will be able to tell how much fun we had by watching our video...

This really was an AMAZING and FUN experience that we will remember forever! Not only were the lobsters fresh and delicious, the lobster bisque and lobster cakes were superb. The lobster ravioli was single handedly one of the finest dishes I have ever tasted... I was blown away! Thank you so much, it was a wonderful Valentine's experience! The Lobster Gram is BRILLIANT, I will certainly do this again AND, I will recommend it to EVERYONE!

The Ordering Process Was Easy and Fast

Just a quick note of thanks. We sent the Maine Shore Clambake Live Lobster dinner to my parents in Florida for their 59th anniversary. They thought it was one of the best gifts they ever received. I found the web site and ordering process easy and fast. Thank you for making a hard gift (they have everything) easy and fast.. All the best
