If you’re living in the UK, it’s time to rejoice, September heralded the beginning of England’s native oyster season. Native oysters, which take about 5 years to mature, spawn from May to August, and during this time they’re protected by an act of Parliament. But in the autumn and winter months, native oysters are widely available. Adele will always tell you there is no better match for No. 1 Cuvée than oysters.
If you’re visiting London, check out this article from The Telegraph, with a list of the best oyster bars in the capital.
This article has a list of restaurants around the UK from Whitby to Falmouth, where you can also enjoy this seafood delicacy.
If you’d like to try some at home, visit Simply Oysters to order yours, they offer next day courier delivery to addresses in the UK.
Once you have your beauties at home, we recommend that you serve them “Au Naturel”, the flavour of the oyster is so delicate that they are best served chilled with a squeeze of lemon, a grind of black pepper and a little brown bread.
Of course, it’s absolutely obligatory to serve with a suitable chilled glass of No. 1 Cuvée, order yours from Amathus.
