More Information
When award-winning Texas food writer Robb Walsh discovers that the local Galveston Bay oysters are being passed off as Blue Points & Chincoteagues in other parts of the country, he decides to look into the matter. Thus begins a five-year journey into the culture of one of the world?s oldest delicacies. Walsh?s through-the-looking-glass adventure takes him from oyster reefs to oyster bars & from corporate boardrooms to hotel bedrooms in a quest for the truth about the world?s most profitable aphrodisiac.

On the Atlantic, the Pacific, & the Gulf coasts of the U.S., as well as the Canadian Maritimes, Ireland, England, & France, the author ingests thousands of oysters?raw, roasted, barbecued, & baked?all for the sake of making a fair comparison. He also considers the merits of a wide variety of accompanying libations, including tart white wines in Paris, Guinness in Galway, martinis in London, microbrews in the Pacific Northwest, & tequila in Texas.

Sex, Death & Oysters is a record of a gastronomic adventure with illustrations & recipes?a fascinating collection of the most exciting, instructive, poignant, & just plain weird experiences on a trip into the world of the most beloved & feared of all seafoods.
