It has been quite some time that we posted anything about food. I particularly like this scholarly book The Oysters of Locmariaquer by Eleanor Clark on these famous oysters from France. This book is worthy of a place on the shelf of cookbooks, and more than that, it is very much a tribute to the place in – and the people of Brittany, France.
When a book starts out with the phrase, “Canst tell how an oyster makes his shell? – N0. – Nor I neither” from King Lear (Shakespeare), you almost know right away that you will be in for a a real treat.
And, if you want to brush up on the ” The Art of Eating an Oyster”, then check out this wonderful food blog by Jon Rowley here.
