“An amazing tome… The stories behind each oyster and location are informative, in depth, but, most importantly, fun”
– Michel Roux Jr

Bobby Groves is Head of Oysters at the Chiltern Firehouse and there isn’t much he doesn’t know about this extraordinary bivalve. It’s his wonderful ability to weave that knowledge through this hugely enjoyable travelogue that makes this a special book. It’s a pleasure to follow him on a 5000 mile odyssey around Britain’s coasts in search of a marvellous creature that has been food for the great and good at times and everyman at others. Great food writing, cultural history and literary escape, all beautifully layered together – a pearl of a book.
