The Love Shuck

On National Oyster Day, a Little History and a Big Recipe

For the bivalve lovers out there, today is going to be a good one — it’s National Oyster Day.

Aw Shucks: Nat'l Oyster Day in NOLA

There are more than 100 species of oysters, and they are known by countless names such as Wellfleets, Kumamoto and La Saint Simon. But in these parts we just call ‘em “ersters”. Though nearly two billion pounds of these bivalves are eaten every year, today all should belly-up to the bar with a cold one and suck down a few dozen on the half-shell. It’s National Oyster Day.
