An Eater's Guide to Craft Oysters from Tide to Table

Book cover for Appreciating Oysters by Dana Deskiewicz
The essential guide to America's booming craft oyster scene

Oysters are having a moment. Like craft beer before them, oysters are being discovered by discerning foodies who love that they're a tide-to-table, sustainable form of protein, and an adventurous food trend that's as Instagrammable as they come.

Oyster expert and founder of the Oystour app Dana Deskiewicz takes readers of a salty ride through the current craft oyster scene. The 75 varieties profiled are lovingly raised on small farms along America's coasts, with names as memorable as their flavors—Murder Point, Choptank Sweets, Fat Dogs, Lady Chatterleys, and many more.

Whether you seek they eye-opening brine explosion of an East coast Breachway, or the cucumber-and-melon delicacy of a West coast Church Point, Deskiewicz will guide you through the best bivalves North America has to offer.
