Consider the Oyster
by M.F.K. Fisher

The "poet of the appetites," as John Updike called her, writes about food so beautifully and sexily, we had a hard time picking our favorite book. Her tiny volume Consider the Oyster is a gorgeous homage to the "strange cold succulence" of these tasty creatures — and you don't even have to be an oyster aficionado to enjoy her luscious prose. Some recipes are included such as oyster loaf.
