A Wendalicious reader asks:
What would you prepare if a friend sent a bushel of Chesapeake Bay Oysters (live, unshucked) to your home as a gift? The approximately 100 oysters will be packed so as to keep for 2 weeks and come with two oyster knives.
Your friend, Joanne
What nice friends you have! A very thoughtful gift.
I personally do not like oysters, and thus have never prepared them myself. Can any of you out there offer Joanne some guidance? The only thing I can offer is a wine suggestion – a very dry sparking wine, perhaps Gruet Brut from New Mexico. One of my personal favorites.
