Here at Cully and Sully we love to celebrate the change of years by eating through the seasons.

As the weather gets cooler and the Christmas festivities are in full swing we are loving this delicious recipe for creamy lobster vol au vents and delicious rich and warming spiced rum eggnog. We've also included our favourite mulled wine recipe. That's your Christmas dinner party sorted.

This month we are also giving away two Fitbits. Keep reading to find out more :)


This is a delicious rich and creamy filling for hot buttery vol au vent cases.


Cooking the lobster:

Place the live lobster in a pot just big enough to hold it with a lid on. Measure in just enough cold water to cover the lobster. Add 2 tsp of salt for each 500ml of water. Cover with the lid and place on a low. The lobster will fall asleep in the water as it warms. Turn up the heat and simmer until the lobster has changed from blue to bright red/pink. Then remove from the water and allow to cool. Open the lobster and pick out all the flesh from the body, claws and legs. Making sure you discard the stomach sack from behind the eyes and the gills from under the legs. Cut all the flesh int pieces about 1cm in size and set aside.



1 x 700g-800g lobster, (cooled, cooled and all the flesh removed)

25g butter.
