Full Synopsis
In this passionate, playful, and indispensable guide, oyster aficionado Rowan Jacobsen takes listeners on a delectable tour of the oysters of North America. Region by region, he describes each oyster's appearance, flavor, origin, and availability, as well as explaining how oysters grow, how to shuck them without losing a finger, how to pair them with wine (not to mention beer), and why they're one of the few farmed seafoods that are good for the earth as well as good for you. Packed with fabulous recipes, plus lists of top oyster restaurants, producers, and festivals, A Geography of Oysters is the guide that oyster lovers of all kinds have been waiting for.

"The ultimate macropedia for oysters, covering not just geography, but also philosophy, consumerism, epicurean splendor and the proper way to grow a pearl." ---Publishers Weekly Starred Review

"The best books about food are often equal parts personal memoir, historical narrative, cultural anthropology, travel diary, and natural history. Jacobsen's handbook on North American oysters encompasses all of these." ---Library Journal
Publishers Weekly Review
