#InGoodTaste: Oysters!

Aug 05, 2013, 10:26 AM, London, Greater London, United Kingdom

Clare Mulley presents #InGoodTaste - cooking up a storm on ZoneOneRadio, the community station for central London.

This week we’re taking a look at Oysters.

A rich man's delicacy in ancient Rome, the poor man's protein in Victorian London, it’s fair to say Britain’s native oysters have had a rocky ride.

We visit Whitstable, Kent, home to arguably the world’s most famous Oysters, during their annual Oyster Festival. Our first stop is the Whitstable Oyster Company.

Over the last ten years, Oyster bars have been opening all over London. Wright Brothers are one such place - and we speak to Ben Wright about how their business came about.

Lastly we go to Borough market, home of Richard Haward's oysters, to find out about their wild Colchester oysters.

Lucy also cooks up a storm on Whitstable Beach - making Oysters Rockefeller and Kilpatrick.
