Product Description

Fisher here pays tribute to that most enigmatic of ocean creatures, the oyster. As she tells of oysters found in stews, in soups, roasted, baked, fried, prepared a la Rockefeller or au naturel – and of the pearls sometimes found therein – Fisher describes her mother’s joy at encountering oyster loaf in a girls’ dorm in the 1890s, recalls her own initiation into the “strange cold succulence” of raw oysters as a young woman in Marseille and Dijon, and explores both the bivalve’s famed aphrodisiac properties and its equally notorious gut-wrenching powers. Fisher invites readers to share in the comforts and delights that this delicate edible evokes, enchanting readers her characteristically wise and witty prose. Index of Recipes. 78p.
