From the one-time editor of the #1 bestselling The Good Food Guide, award-winning writer Drew Smith’s Oyster: A Gastronomic History offers readers a global view of the oyster, tracing its role in cooking, art, literature, and politics from the dawn of time to the present day.

Oyster: A Gastronomic History

 

by Drew Smith

 

Oysters have inspired chefs, painters, and writers alike, have sustained communities financially and ecologically, and have loomed large in legend and history. Using the oyster as the central theme, Smith has organized the book around time periods and geographical locations, looking at the oyster’s influence through colorful anecdotes, eye-opening scientific facts, and a wide array of visuals. The book also includes 50 recipes—traditional country dishes and contemporary examples from some of the best restaurants in the world.
