The Tsarkaya Oysters have been the food of royalty since the dawn of time, including for Roman emperors, French Kings and even Russian Tsars. This fully fleshed oyster is exclusively ripened and produced in the bay of Mont Saint Michel.
Firm to crunchy, powerful on the palette, pure and with a taste of iodine. It releases a sugary flavour that tastes almost like sweet almonds.
Keep alive till ready to serve. Keep in the shell with cup side down to retain moisture (damp cloth covering them). Keep chilled (but not in ice or water). Best to eat as soon as possible.
To best savor the flavour, enjoy “au naturel”, slurping the oyster meat and liquid “right from the shell”. Serve the oysters raw on bottom shell (top shell removed) on bed of ice with slice of lemon or vinegar seasoning or Tabasco sauce. Have a small fork to detach the meat if necessary. Cooked option include oyster Kilpatrick and oyster mornay.
