January 24th is Lobster Thermidor Day.
Lobster Thermidor is a creamy entree made with lobster meat folded into a decadent sauce made with egg yolks, cream, mustard, and cognac. Classically it’s stuffed back into the lobster shell, then sprinkled with Gruyère and toasted under a broiler.
This classic French dish was first served at Chez Marie’s, a Parisian restaurant, on January 24, 1894.
That same evening Victorien Sardou’s play “Thermidor” had its first performance at the Comedie-Francais theatre. Marie named her dish after the play. The play was called “Thermidor” after one of the months of the French republican calendar. 
What not have some today?
