Live oysters are flavorful and refreshing. Though they are also delicious cooked, slurping them down on the half shell is one of life’s greatest gastronomic pleasures. As the French like to say, “Eating a raw oyster is like kissing the sea on the lips.”
Live Olympia oysters are a great choice for beginners because of their small size, while live Kumamoto oysters and Pacific oysters are a hit with connoisseurs. For large oysters, try live Virginica oysters, grown 3-5 years before harvest! All of these oysters are farmed off the coast of Washington State.
