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.
