Yes! In medieval times it was poor mans food. Not now but I bet it tastes the same.

Fresh Oysters - nothing like them. I guess it's a marmite thing; love'em or hate'em.

Yes but as it has been pointed out before, just because you like some things and dislike others it does not mean that others have to follow. Oysters are great at the right time in the right place but golf, gin and Armagnac do nothing for me. I’m glad you enjoy them but it doesn’t make your opinion of other things particularly valuable.

Love them if they are bit and juicy, like mussels, with a decent wine.

Having once suffered a horrendous bout of food poisoning from shell fish, I am not that keen.

Overrated? Tasteless? S'not!

Proper punctuation matters.

LOL! Domi - I've never suggested my opinions are valuable or that anyone has to follow them - that's simply your interpretation / view although... I would suggest you pretty much detest anything I say. That's fine however, I'm as much entitled to my opinions as you are. But hey - what about port - does that do anything for you? Heck we may have something in common.... :roll: :P :roll: :P

You can eat them cooked with garlic parsley and fine bread crumbs (chaplure?)
I can eat them cooked this way, but I'm not a fan. Raw, I find them disgusting...
You learn from your mistakes but it's much quicker and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of other people ! :D

I've had them cooked in various dishes but raw - Noooooooo!

My youngest daughter who is a bit of a foodie says they are overrated and says they are "like chewing a salty bogie"
