Oyster Delight

The first and only oyster cookbook written by the alter ego of a fisheries biologist who spent years cultivating oysters in Ireland for the European market.

Click here to purchase the cookbook, signed by himself even!

These recipes are about as easy as you could imagine.  Click here for some samples. They are exerpted from Alex's oyster cookbook, titled "Oyster Delight by Jonathan Mite." Oyster Delight is so much more than just a cookbook. It has much practical information about different oyster varieties as well as buying, shucking, and eating techniques. Moreover, OD will delight you with anecdotes and stories about the oyster's place in history (and herstory).

Oyster Delight is available as black and white spiral bound book from White Seahorse, Inc. and Guide Service Press for $15.00 plus shipping. Please click here for ordering information.
