Freshen up your roll game with foccacia. 

Says Chef Kerry Altiero, Maine Lobster Chef Of The Year 2012:

"Maine lobster, being one of the best proteins on earth, is a no brainer. Cafe Miranda is located in Rockland, Maine: the lobster capital of the world. Many of our customers over our 20+ years are local lobstermen and we support them as they support us. Local was, is and will be how we operate in Maine and at Cafe Miranda."

Any tips for cooking, chef? 

"The absolutely best way is to head down to the docks and get a bucket of sea water. In Nebraska? Sea-salting the water is okay."
