My husband loves oysters. I've tried them. I wouldn't say they are my favorite dish. I realize they are considered a delicacy. In The Oyster Wars of Chesapeake Bay, John Wennersten tells of how the ancient Romans devised a method for packing oysters in bags of ice. This way they would stay closed and fresh on the long export route from England to Rome. It seems to me that if they were willing to do that much work 2000 years ago, oysters must be something special. But I have never ordered a plate of oysters and honestly don't see myself ever doing so.... but I never used to order sushi and now I love it. Maybe my palate will continue to mature.
Are there any "delicacies" that you just can't seem to appreciate?
