Oyster Tasting Guide

Eating raw oysters is a uniquely invigorating experience. No other food conjures up a taste sensation as strongly as an oyster: the essence of the sea in edible form. However, there are large differences among oysters with regard to taste, body and nose; the environmental conditions have a significant impact on flavours. Tastes can range from some salty to floral, some have fruity notes, mineral flavour or even hints of spice. Even oysters from the same estuary can vary in flavour depending upon exactly where they are grown. Like wine, oysters gain much of their flavour from their terroir or maybe their merroir even?! Different oysters suit different occasions and different people. If you havent yet been wowed by oysters, you may well have been eating with the wrong ones. This film shows our tasting session of 14 oysters from throughout the UK; the scores were used in our “UK Oyster Tasting Guide” (bit.ly

Rolling Stone magazine voted the song “Best Rock Single” of 1976, in 2004 the magazine’s list of the “500 Greatest Songs of All Time” ranked it at #397 and in 2009 it was named the 55th best hard rock song of all time by VH1. Part of the song’s appeal consists in its resonance with archetypal themes. The reaper is a reference to the Grim Reaper, a traditional symbol of death in European folklore. Moreover, songs and poetry pairing “Death and the Maiden” date back from before the Middle Ages. Lyrics such as “Romeo and Juliet are together in eternity” have led many listeners to interpret the song to be about a murder-suicide pact, but Dharma says the song is about eternal love, not death. The song has been covered an amazing 22 times with the 2 most popular covers by “The Goo Goo Dolls” and “Big Country” It has appeared in 19 different TV shows including “Saturday Night Live,” “Smallville,” “Bones,” “The Simpsons
