Another friend of mine has a new book just out that I thought I’d give a free plug to. It’s by Robb Walsh, a fellow Texan and longtime food writer, and is called Sex, Death and Oysters. (Don’t you just love that title?) The official description calls it “a record of a gastronomic adventure with illustrations and recipes—a fascinating collection of the most exciting, instructive, poignant, and just plain weird experiences on a trip into the world of the most beloved and feared of all seafoods.” Wow, who knew oysters could be that exciting? Personally, I’d rather read about oysters than eat them, so I’ll have to add Sex, Death and Oysters to my ever-growing reading list. Best of luck and continued happy eating, Robb!
