Rowan Jacobsen

A Geography of Oysters

A Geography of Oysters: The Connoisseur’s Guide to Oyster Eating in North America is the quintessential oyster book, and it’s the one I first read when I became obsessed with oysters. Rowan Jacobsen explains the basics of oysters, then takes you on a tour of the US to introduce you to 99 different types. I also love his book, The Essential Oyster: A Salty Appreciation of Taste and Temptation.
