dungeness crab season, my friend, dungeness crab! when the season kicks in, the shell is still pretty soft, and there is no need for hammers or mallets. and they are so sweet... so sweet.
anyway, it'a a west coast affair and i don't know if you guys are getting these beauties over there. i don't feel too sorry for you though, you've got lobsters, shrimp and soft shells coming out of your wazoos. let me know if you want some, i'll hook you up with my guy and he'll be more than happy to ship'em. cheers!!
p.s. i decided not to go with burgundy tonight. instead, i had a few bottles of '03 cotes de provence chateau barbanau that were smilling at me for quite sometime in my garage fridge. rather good stuff, it went with delicate crab flavours quite well. cheers all!
