LOBSTER À LA NEWBURG
("The Settlement" Cook-Book, 1903)
The meat of two lobsters cut into one-inch pieces, placed into sauce pan with one ounce fresh butter, salt, cayenne pepper (two truffles cut into dice are a great improvement). Cook five minutes, add one wineglass Madeira, reduce to half by boiling three minutes.
Beat three yolks with one-half pint cream, and stir it into the above mixture. Shuffle lightly two minutes until all is blended, and serve on toast.
