1 Peel and finely chop the onions and carrots; peel and dice the potatoes; peel and crush the garlic cloves.
2 Put the water, white wine, half the chopped onions and carrots, the potatoes, salt and peppercorns in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Then put in the lobster and simmer again for about 30 minutes or until the lobster is cooked.

Split the lobster in half lengthwise, cracks the claws and take out the meat from the tail shell and the claws; cut it into 1/2-inch pieces. Break the lobster shell into pieces (use either a hammer or nut crackers), put them into a pan with the reserved cooking liquor and simmer for 20 minutes.
