MEET PARIS OYSTER
A Love Affair with the Perfect Food

MEET PARIS OYSTER is an engaging exploration of the Parisian love affair with the world's most sensuous shellfish. It centers on Hu?trerie R?gis, a tightly packed oyster bar in the heart of the City of Light, with an opinionated owner and a colorful cast of regulars. Part cultural journey, part cookbook, and part slice-of-life play, this book introduces readers to the appetites (gastronomic and otherwise) of Paris and its people. Beyond Hu?trerie R?gis, the French oystermen, and the other characters in pursuit of the oyster, Mireille Guiliano shares information on the best oysters around the world, their nutritional value, the best wine pairings with them, and a dozen mouthwatering recipes that will have readers craving, buying, and preparing oysters with confidence. So take a virtual trip to Paris -- indulge and enjoy!
