Add lobster to boiling liquid and cover; cook for 6 minutes. Add mussels, clams, shrimp, corn halves and half-boiled potatoes. Bring to a boil, and cook for an additional 6 minutes.
Take the lobster out of the pot, crack the claws and split the tail, discard the rest of the lobster. Add lobster claws and tails to a large bowl and spoon remaining ingredients into the bowl. Add the cooked wine broth. Serve with Olive Lea Spread and garlic bread.
