Bill Buford's Heat meets Phoebe Damrosch's Service Included in this unique blend of personal narrative, food miscellany, and history In March of 2009, Erin Byers Murray ditched her pampered city girl lifestyle and convinced the rowdy and mostly male crew at Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, Massachusetts, to let a completely unprepared, aquaculture-illiterate food and lifestyle writer work for them for a year to learn the business of oysters. The result is Shucked—part love letter, part memoir and part documentary about the world's most beloved bivalves. Providing an in-depth look at the work that goes into getting oysters from farm to table, Shucked shows Erin's fullcircle journey through the modern day oyster farming process and tells a dynamic story about the people who grow our food, and the cutting-edge community of weathered New England oyster farmers who are defying convention and looking ahead. The narrative also interweaves Erin's personal story—the tale of how a technology-obsessed workaholic learns to slow life down a little bit and starts to enjoy getting her hands dirty (and cold). This is a book for oyster lovers everywhere, but also a great read for locavores and foodies in general.

From Rowan Jacobsen, America's go-to expert, the author of the trailblazing A Geography of Oysters, comes the ultimate oyster guide--a gorgeous, full-color, must-have book. A decade ago, Rowan Jacobsen wrote a book called A Geography of Oysters that celebrated the romance of oysters, the primal rush of slurping a raw denizen of the sea, and the mysteries of molluscan terroir. The book struck a chord, and American oyster culture has been on a gravity-defying trajectory ever since. With lavish four-color photos throughout by renowned photographer David Malosh, The Essential Oyster is the definitive book for oyster-lovers everywhere, featuring stunning portraits, tasting notes, and backstories of all the top oysters, as well as recipes from America's top oyster chefs and a guide to the best oyster bars. Spotlighting about a third of the more than three hundred different oysters in North America today--the unique, the historically significant, the flat-out yummiest--The Essential Oyster introduces the oyster culture and history of every region of North America, as well as overseas. There is no coastline from British Columbia to Baja, from New Iberia to New Brunswick, that isn't producing great oysters. For the most part, these are deeper cupped, stronger shelled, finer flavored, and more stylish than their predecessors. Some have colorful stories to tell. Some have quirks. All have character. The Essential Oyster will help you find the best--and help you to cherish them better. That is what's captured--and celebrated--in these pages.

A luminous, intensely moving tale that begins with a secret lovers’ assignation in the spring of 1924, then unfolds to reveal the whole of a remarkable life. Twenty-two-year-old Jane Fairchild has worked as a maid at an English country house since she was sixteen. For almost all of those years she has been the clandestine lover to Paul Sheringham, young heir of a neighboring house. The two now meet on an unseasonably warm March day—Mothering Sunday—a day that will change Jane’s life forever. As the narrative moves back and forth from 1924 to the end of the century, what we know and understand about Jane—about the way she loves, thinks, feels, sees, remembers—expands with every vividly captured moment. Her story is one of profound self-discovery, and through her, Graham Swift has created an emotionally soaring, deeply affecting work of fiction. From the Hardcover edition.

Manual For Design And Operation Of An Oyster Seed Hatchery For The American Oyster Crassostrea Virginica

The past decade has witnessed an extremely rapid development in the "science" of mariculture, especially the design and operation of modern oyster seed hatcheries. The Department of Marine Culture at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science over the past seven years has developed an oyster hatchery system through research and cooperative efforts with the fisheries industry. This system, including the biological protocol to be described in detail on the following pages, has been tested successfully and is a modification of that system used at Chesapeake Sea Farms, Inc. in Ridge, Maryland. It is important to stress this system represents a totally integrated concept-an interdependent system, which, if taken apart and used as separate steps, will yield poor results, especially when modifying the oyster larval food diet. The detailed instructions are not meant to bore the expert, but are included to make sure the results can be reproduced.

In every cook's kitchen, there is a treasured tool: a workhorse utensil, go-to gadget, or a family heirloom with it's own background story and the lofty standing of being a cook's most-prized possession. These beloved items say as much about the cook as their style of cooking. They tell stories about a cook's past and about the moments that led them to where they are today. For some, it might be a spoon inherited from a grandmother's silver set, which they use to taste every sauce. Or it could be a spaetzle maker picked up during a stage in Germany that's been used during every job since. Whether it's a colander, cake stand, or a grandfather's iron skillet, every chef has a piece in their arsenal that gives a glimpse into their cooking history, their philosophy, and their technique. In the enlightening kitchen compilation A Colander, Cake Stand, and My Grandfather's Iron Skillet, author Erin Byers Murray collects stories from 40 chefs about their favorite kitchen utensil. The stories, told in the chef's own words, include the tale of how they came to acquire it, the details that it so essential, and insight into why--and when--they rely on it. Along with each story, the chef will provide a recipe that uses that particular tool or something similar, so that home cooks can try their hand at a professional chef's approach. Laid out with a minimalist's design and featuring fine-point illustrations of the tools as well as a selection of color photographs throughout the book depicting the recipes, A Colander, Cake Stand, and My Grandfather's Iron Skillet reveals the personalities of some of America's best and hardest working chefs, while giving readers a keepsake of recipes to go along with an insider's guide to some of the most treasured - and essential -- kitchen tools in the country.
