tips for tuesday: consider the oyster

"You have to proceed with confidence and make carnality an asset. Think like a predator. Grab the shell, raise it to your lips, tilt your head back, slurp the oyster in, and give a few chews to release full flavor. The little cocktail forks are a disaster; save them for the Vienna sausages."

Y'all, it's oyster season.  

There should be a song.  A parade.  A Lifetime movie.  

The folks in Amite, Louisiana know this, and they throw a big party for this belle of the seafood ball in March, every year. C'est Ci Bon!

Oyster Season should be as big as baseball season.  

Oh, how I love oysters!

But oysters can be a little tricky for the home cook. Luckily, we have help.

Below, find links to tips from the pros, all over. And don't be shy-- roll up your sleeves, take the proper safety precautions, and master that shell.  

You'll be shucking and slurping in no time.
