A couple of weeks ago when I was browsing Hog Island's Oyster Cookbook, I came across an interesting and truthful quote by food legend M.F.K. Fisher, "There are three kinds of oyster-eaters: those loose-minded sports who will eat anything, hot, cold, thin, thick, dead, or alive, as long as it is oyster; those who will only eat them raw and only raw; those who with equal severity eat them cooked and no other way." While I love oysters in any way, shape, or form, my mother only enjoys cooked oysters. What kind of oyster eater are you? Do you prefer fresh and cold or baked and savory?
