You can eat oysters without any accompaniment - traditionally straight from the shell (slip a knife, or the oyster fork provided to ensure the meat is detached completely from the shell - thenjust pour the oyster and its juices straight into your mouth. Talk about a taste of the sea! Savour and swallow those seawater juices but don’t swallow the oyster just yet - rather press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue and, as it collapses releasing even more flavour, THEN swallow. Fantastic!
Here at Chateau Bouteiller we also offer various accompaniments to our guests and let them choose: Fresh lemon quarters to squeeze over , tabasco or chilli sauce, very finely chopped shallots soaked in quality red wine vinegar. Try them all!
