Oysters Are Like Wine
Oysters, like wine, take on subtle taste variations based on where they are grown. Oyster connoisseurs use some of the same terminology as wine lovers. They use terms like “finish” and describe the taste as “crisp” and “clean,” or perhaps as “fruity” or with “vegetable overtones.” Oysters are affected by: water temperature: lower temps= firmer meats salinity: higher salinity= cleaner sharper flavor the vegetation they eat the month they are harvested Note: Consuming raw or undercooked meat, poultry, seafood, shellfish, or eggs may increase your risk of food borne illness.
