Once upon a time before we were born, lobsters were considered food for the poor. There was an abundance of these crustaceans then for nobody bothered to eat them. Things took a dramatic turn around the 19th century when whole cooked lobsters started being served on silver platters to the affluent class. Prices soared and the lobster became a prized catch.
