One last quick photo-centric post on oysters in Paris. This fab fish market was in the center of the Alésia neighborhood—located in the heart of the 14th arrondissement—about halfway between my cute little Hotel Max and the Auberge du Moulin Vert (see earlier post).
Oyster! Oysters! Oysters! Boxes of lovely Fine de Claire and Gillardeau and Speciale Normande and more.
How I wish this were my neighborhood fish store. Note to self: Next trip to Paris buy an oyster knife to shuck my own!
I grew up spending part of every summer in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, which included eating many oysters. After stumbling into an oyster shucking competition in Miami Beach in 2006, I’ve become a fan of the sport and have written about local, national, and international competitions for the Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, American Way Magazine, and the Huffington Post. I've also written oyster-centric stories for Rustik and Modern Farmer. I’ve never met an oyster I didn’t want to eat.
