Publisher's Summary

In this passionate, playful, and indispensable guide, oyster aficionado Rowan Jacobsen takes listeners on a delectable tour of the oysters of North America. Region by region, he describes each oyster's appearance, flavor, origin, and availability, as well as explaining how oysters grow, how to shuck them without losing a finger, how to pair them with wine (not to mention beer), and why they're one of the few farmed seafoods that are good for the earth as well as good for you. Packed with fabulous recipes, plus lists of top oyster restaurants, producers, and festivals, A Geography of Oysters is the guide that oyster lovers of all kinds have been waiting for.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
