Summary

Summary

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of French Women Don't Get Fat comes a memorable look at the French appetite for oysters, the characters who harvest and serve them, and the compelling reasons why we should all enjoy them.

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!

“Author-narrator Mireille Guiliano’s enthusiasm is evident from the first few minutes of this short but informative treatise on oysters, which also includes stories about her friend Régis, a Parisian oysterman. Listeners can’t help but be charmed by Guiliano’s French accent and conversational approach to her performance.” AudioFile
