Blue Plate Oysterette is hosting two special oyster-tasting evening events with oyster authority Rowan Jacobsen at both of their locations in Santa Monica (Nov. 18th.) and on Los Angeles’ West Third St. (Nov. 17th.) Rowan is the distinguished author of the James Beard Award-winning A Geography of Oysters – The Connoisseur’s Guide To Oyster Eating In North America.
Rowan Jacobsen ate his first oyster when he was 12-years old and the rest is, well, history. Now, an oyster expert as well as renowned author, his love and knowledge for oysters continues to grow.
“I’m excited to partner with Blue Plate Oysterette because of their unique spin on a classic New England restaurant. It will be wonderful to showcase some of the top New England oysters, which will be at their absolute peak at that time, and then mix in a couple of West Coast oysters for contrast. I’m looking forward to visiting LA and interacting side by side with West Coaster’s who share a love of oysters.” says Rowan.
Rowan shares some practical wine-pairing tips with oysters. On wine does not work as the perfect match for every oyster variety. In the book he has “seven rules” for oyster wines.
