Recently released, The Essential Oyster: A Salty Appreciation of Taste and Temptation is now available in hard copy and for the kindle.
To date, all of the reviews on Amazon are positive and why shouldn't they be? There are not many authors on the topic of oysters better than Rowan Jacobsen. Oyster lovers know about his books including my two favorites about oysters:
1. A Geography of Oysters: The Connoisseur's Guide to Oyster Eating in North America, a must read!
2. The Living Shore: Rediscovering a Lost World.
These three books make great gifts for yourself, your friends, and family members.
