In celebration of National Oyster Day we look at Serving & Eating Oysters with Ben

There are so many ways to serve and eat oysters they are just so versitile; on the half shell, raw, smoked, boiled, baked, fried, roasted, stewed, canned, pickled, steamed or broiled.

How you prepare your oysters can vary from simply opening the shell and eating the contents, including juice. Butter and salt are often added. What could be better- fresh, simple and indulgent! Perfect with fizz or a chilled white or even a pint of of porter!

There is no right or wrong way to eat an oyster, however Ben suggests, with your fork move the liquid-filled half shell to ensure the oyster is detached. Bring the shell to your mouth and slurp up the oyster from the wide end. Chew it once or twice before swallowing.
