Full Boil

Ah, lobster—so delicious, grown men and women will willingly don a bib to eat one. Gain culinary mastery over the delectable crustacean in A Lobster Primer: Hands-On Cooking & Wine Pairing ($125), a class taking place at the Astor Center on June 17 from 6 pm to 9:30 pm. Chef Emily Peterson demonstrates several classic lobster dishes, including lobster rolls and lobster bisque, while a sommelier pairs each with ideal vintages. Fair warning for squeamish students: the lobsters are live, and learning to ready them for the pot (“dispatch,” in the language of the Astor Center) is one of the main points of the class.
