Cousins Maine Lobster
In the kitchen today, we've got cousins and owners of Cousins Maine Lobster, Sabin Lomac and Jim Tselikis.

Today, Jim and Sabin are teaching you the perfect way to clean the meat from a lobster. And later, Cristina and Sabin are going to turn our fresh picked lobster into a romantic lobster risotto!
