Oysters are having a moment. Like craft beer before them, oysters are being discovered by discerning foodies who love that they're a tide-to-table, sustainable form of protein, and an adventurous food trend that's as Instagrammable as they come.
Oyster expert and founder of the Oystour app Dana Deskiewicz takes readers of a salty ride through the current craft oyster scene. The 85 varieties profiled are lovingly raised on small farms along America's coasts, with names as memorable as their flavors--Murder Point, Choptank Sweets, Fat Dogs, Lady Chatterleys, and many more.
Whether you seek they eye-opening brine explosion of an East coast Breachway, or the cucumber-and-melon delicacy of a West coast Church Point, Deskiewicz will guide you through the best bivalves North America has to offer.
