Cooks & Books Presents Nils Bernstein | The Joy of Oysters

JUNE 7 | 6 PM

Join us in the library by the fireplace for a conversation with Nils Bernstein, author of The Joy of Oysters: A Complete Guide to Sourcing, Shucking, Grilling, Broiling, and Frying. This definitive oyster bible and cookbook from expert food writer Bernstein delivers an array of tips, trivia, and history, plus approachable recipes that celebrate the delicious bivalve.

Behold the oyster. Delicious, a little decadent, yet one of the healthiest things to eat, and now completely sustainable and easily available. And behold The Joy of Oysters, a smorgasbord of information, recipes, tips, stories, history, and everything else the oyster lover and the oyster curious could want to know. Learn how to select the freshest, tastiest oysters. How to store, clean, shuck, and serve. And why we no longer avoid eating them in months without an r. But best of all, celebrate the joy of eating and cooking with oysters.
