Do You Speak Shellfish?


Here’s another memorable moment from a movie that focuses on food. It’s from the Woodie Allen movie titled “Annie Hall,” starring Allen and Diane Keaton.  The film came out in 1977 and garnered several Academy Awards, including Best Director for Allen and Best Actress for Keaton.

Keaton places Annie Hall and Allen plays Alvy Singer. He’s trying to understand why the relationship didn’t work with Annie Hall.

An interesting note: the scene that follows was the very first scene shot when the film went into production on May 19, 1976, on the South Fork of Long Island


Have you had any too close encounters with lobsters? Or do you find it just too daunting, like Diane Keaton's character who says "I can't put a live thing in hot water."

Here's a tip. If you are preparing live lobsters for a delightful feast, make it a little easier on yourself (and the lobsters). Stick them in the freezer for 20 minutes or so before you pop them in the pot.  This numbs them.  And it's less traumatic for both of you.
