For Mother’s Day, Marilou Makes a Succulent Confession

As far back as Marilou can remember, there’s always been lobster at the family table, so much so that the Mother’s Day quiche was unimaginable without it. She explains why she owes her affection for lobster to her mother…and reveals tasty morsels of their relationship, in the form anecdotes, along the way.

What is your mother’s greatest culinary accomplishment?

“She’s Acadian, so she has mastered cooking lobster to perfection. She boils it in highly salted water, recreating the seawater. I don’t even remember the first time I ate it. It’s always been such a big part of my life.”

If she goes on a road trip, what would your mom bring to eat?

“Always the same thing: egg sandwiches. And something very important: extra mayo! I do the same thing.”

Has your mom ever caused a culinary disaster?

“A very real one! Several years ago, she blew up the barbecue! Literally. She threw herself into the pool to save her skin. It was the springtime and the water was green and likely full of frogs!”

What kind of birthday cake did she make you when you were young?
“Chocolate-mayo cake (oh yes, mayo again)! I published the recipe in my first book. It was actually my first boyfriend’s mom who introduced it to us when I was 14. And still today, she makes it for every occasion.”

What food emoji best represents your mom?
“The shrimp or the lobster. She’s Madame Seafood.”

Can you name three things that you’re sure are in your mom’s fridge right now?
“Cucumbers, drinkable yogurt for her grandkids, and plant-based milk for her chai lattes. No joke, I think she drinks eight a day.“

Have you ever exposed your mom to a new type of food or dish?
“She loves my Swedish meatballs, the ones you can buy at IGA. She always has them in her freezer and serves them when she has guests, using them in her pasta recipes.”

Which one of your mother’s dishes is a hit with your kids?
“Her mac and cheese. It’s really good. When I was little, she didn’t cook much. I think she waited to become a grandma to finally show us all her skills.”

What has your mom passed along to you?
“Her little fondness for caramel. Her huge fondness for caramel, in fact. In front of a jar of caramel, all control is lost. Because I love chocolate even more, it’s even better if the two are mixed. Basically, she gave me her sweet tooth.”
