Zucchini cream with artichoke, lobster and chives; Lobster Ravioli (92 calories) which was to DIE FOR!! OMG; Fishes Rillettes, Salsamic Vinaigrette. They told me these were just the tasting sizes, but it’s hard to believe that a serving larger than these could only be 80 calories. The trick they said about the delicious taste was replacing the butter and cream with yogurt and spices.
