The Chef who gave the lobster demo yesterday was not in this morning, but I asked the other Chef about eating the "toxic tomalley". His reply was..
"No! Don't eat it! I don't eat the livers of any animal anymore, it's the filtering system you know, it takes out everything harmful to you and stows it away! You don't know what animals might be exposed to these days!"
Ugh. Yet ANOTHER example of opposing opinions offered up by the Chefs.
In the culinary world there is a saying, "If you want 6 opinions, ask 2 chefs on 3 different days".
