This book is super informative and user-fiendly. If you want to find out about different varieties of oysters and how to describe/distinguish the flavors noted in each variety, you will love this book. We used the recipes and the tasting guide, and have bought and shucked our own oysters with great success (better than some restaurants too!).

An awesome resource for the inquisitive foodie/seafood lover.

*** 9/ 15/ 2015 / 1:55pm = Yes; I bought this book and still have it but I don't know what for. My addiction to oysters on the 1/2 shell prevents me from getting much past the shelling and eating. And now that my daughter bought me an "Earls Oyster Schucker" I know I'll never get to using any of the recipes. Sorry, but it's just an addition to my library. This doesn't change the grade of 5 stars the book earned just from existing. I said I had an 'addiction' for them raw; didn't I? Elton L. Powell
