Gulf oysters

“The whole time I was watching that stupid spill cam with dispersant being injected into the spill, I thought oysters, oysters, oysters,” New Orleans chef Frank Brigsten told local news outlet the Times-Picayune last year.

There’s plenty of people who turn up their nose at gulf oysters. But, growing up on those big, ugly, juicy things, they’re the ones I love best over fancy named, effete tiny ones from other places. Recently, it has been harder to find them. Too bad.

  1. I’m from a place with effete, fancy-named oysters, Coté. Long live those Rappahannocks, Old Salts, and Stingrays! You gotta love the Cotuits and Wellfleets, too.

    Seriously, though, I hope those Gulf beds get healthy again soon.
