Love to create. Hope to inspire.
Amazing color, texture and taste, as always.
And how I love the Oysters! I profess my love for oysters a bit like he did.. but never being able to write such a perfect sentences!
Early in the book, he is in a cafe and feeling a little lonely, jotting down a few notes. In his own words: “I closed up the story in the notebook and put it in my inside pocket and I asked the waiter for a dozen “portugueses” and a half – carafe of the dry white wine they had there.” He had ordered a dozen Crassostrea angulata – the legendary oblong oysters said to have descended spontaneously from the sinking of a single oyster-laden ship from the orient in a harbor in Portugal.
Sadly, these oysters seem to be rarity today in France. .. and I like them simple – no toping, no cheese… no nothing…
You really do not need nothing else… but just a great glass of white wine 🙂
That’s a great story. A way of life emerging from a shipwreck.
… what a great story, you say?? 🙂
think… They eat plankton and phytoplankton; The incredible mix of those tiny plants and animals affects very much their flavor. The tides and temperatures are also very important 🙂
There is something about oysters, and I am very fascinated… not only in love with their taste 🙂
There is something about you, too. 🙂
I saw your comment earlier this afternoon while bottled in the “roman” traffic :). You made me smile, exactly when I needed it 🙂
Have a wonderful dinner! (what will you have for dinner?:). I just opened a bottle of Sauvignon.. what’s next?? 🙂
I might have Mexican taco salad with fresh veggies and greens.
mmm… can I have some?
