Oysters in Paris: Doing It Right

An oyster on the half shell

The Third Day 12.10. I have ordered 12 oysters and coffee and bread and butter.

An oyster on the half shellO oysters! be ye unto me strength that I formulate the 12 rays of the Crown of HVA! I conjure ye, and very potently command.

Even by Him who ruleth Life from the Throne of Tahuti unto the Abyss of Amennti, even by Ptah the swathed one, that unwrappeth the mortal from the immortal, even by Amoun the giver of Life, and by Khem the mighty, whose Phallus is like the Pillar in Karnak! Even by myself and my male power do I conjure ye. Amen.

Oysters are a popular food item in Paris, prepared in various ways. Paris by Mouth recommends, “Squeeze a little lemon on top, pour some mignonette sauce in the shell, or forgo all condiments and slurp it back in one gulp.”

To make mignonette sauce, Bon Appetit tells us, “Stir 1/4 cup red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon minced shallot, and 1/4 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper in a small bowl. Drizzle over shucked oysters.”

Now you can enjoy oysters like the prophet!
