Jack's Lobster Shanty Cole Slaw

Subject: Tom's River Cole Slaw

A seafood restaurant in Tomís River, NJ (Part of a chain with restaurants in Florida)
 had a most delicious Cole slaw they served as an appetizer. As I recall, it was very 
 sweet, thick and creamy (almost like ice cream.) The cabbage was very finely chopped. 
 Any help? I have been trying to duplicate it for years with no luck. The closest was 
 a takeoff on Col Saunderís but it wasnít thick, sweet nor creamy enough.



Hello Don,

Sorry, I'm going to have to have the name of the restaurant to even get started with this. If you can't recall the name, then the street address or something else that I can use to identify the restaurant. Otherwise, I can't help you. The fact that it was in Tom's River, NJ and that it was part of a Florida chain just isn't enough.

Aha. Thanks for your speedy reply.

How 'bout:

Jack Bakerís Lobster Shanty

Toms River, NJ 08753

Hello Don,

I had no success with a real recipe, but there is a Jack's Lobster Shanty fan page on Facebook. See:


There are former employees of Jack's who post on that page, and one of them gave this list of ingredients for the cole slaw:

Cole Slaw: mayo, sugar, apple cider vinegar, celery seed or celery salt. Mix it dump over shredded cabbage and carrots.

He didn't give any quantities, but perhaps you can e-mail him from the Facebook page for more information or experiment with the ingredients on your own.


Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie Like Horn & Hardart

Serves 6

1 chicken (3 to 4 pounds)
1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
3 ribs celery, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
1 cup frozen peas
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into Ĺ-inch dice
2 medium carrots, peelded and cut into Ĺ-inch dice
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2teaspoon celery salt
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1 9-inch prepared pastry crust, about ľ inch thick

Rinse the chicken with running cold water. Place the chicken, onion, 
celery, salt, 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper, and enough water to cover in 
an 8-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover, 
and simmer about 1 1/2 hours, or until the chicken is fork-tender. Reserve 
3 cups of the broth, and remove the chicken to a large bowl. Refrigerate 
for 30 minutes, or until itís cool enough to handle. Discard the skin and 
bones from the chicken, and cut the meat into bite-sized pieces.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cook the peas according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a 3-quart saucepan over a high flame, heat the potatoes, carrots, and 
enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and 
simmer for 15 minutes, or until the vegetables are fork-tender. 
Drain and set aside.

In a 1-quart saucepan, bring the reserved broth to a boil. Remove from the heat. 
In a separate saucepan over low heat, blend the oil and flour. Stirring constantly, 
cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mixture is smooth and golden brown. Continue 
to stir and gradually add the hot broth. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, until itís thickened. 
Add the remaining Ĺ teaspoon of pepper, celery salt, and chicken bouillon. Remove 
the saucepan from the heat.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken pieces with the gravy and the reserved vegetables. 
Pour the mixture into a 2 Ĺ quart casserole dish. Place the pastry crust loosely over 
the chicken mixture. Trim the pastry edge, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fold the overhang 
under and press gently all around the casserole dish to make a high stand-up edge.

In a cup, beat the egg yolk with 1 teaspoon of water. Brush the pastry with the 
egg yolk mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the 
crust is well browned.
