The oyster. Aphrodisiac? Apparently. Appealing? Not really. I’d never had one, so I thought: slimy, grey, icky. And boy, was I wrong.
On the count of three, we simultaneously sampled our first ever oysters, and we were pleasantly surprised. Accompanied with a red onion relish, they just tasted fresh and, quite simply, wonderful. So good in fact, I almost forgot about the champagne. Almost.
