british oysters

The basics With their plump, sweet and salty flesh, oysters are a delicacy the world over. And in the UK, we’re blessed with a bounty of these bivalves, particularly around the South East (where the Kentish town of Whitstable has become synonymous with the oysters caught nearby), as well as in the South West and western Scotland. Oysters have long been costly to consume, but we may be about to see a swing back the Victorian era, when they were cheap and plentiful. With restaurants closed during the pandemic, and post-Brexit rules keeping a lot of seafood on our shores, Britain has a glut of oysters and, as a result, they’ve become more affordable. Wright Brothers and Farmdrop have been selling them for £17 a dozen, while Ocado offers Loch Fyne’s for…

Olives and grapes are the only two things that grow in this rocky, very rural part of Chianti. When my father-in-law brought Pornanino, an abandoned 17th-century Tuscan vineyard estate, he decided to plant olives. His retirement project quickly produced more oil than our family could consume, so we sold it to friends and the business grew from there. We make extra virgin olive oil using a traditional ‘first cold press’ method that’s almost lost. Of Tuscany’s 120 or so producers, only a handful use millstones to press. Our method is how the Romans would have done it, but using a motor rather than a donkey to turn the millstone, and then pruning, picking, pressing and bottling by hand. We’re chemical-free. The value of extra virgin olive oil is largely assessed on taste,…

Shepherds like Jaroslaw Buczek can be responsible for herds of up to 600 sheep, although typically as few as 100 will belong to them — the rest are entrusted to their care for the summer by local farmers. The shepherds negotiate with local landowners the use of fallow land, where the sheep graze on grass, flowers and herbs — a diet that gives their milk a distinct taste. The best-known mountain cheeses are oscypek, golka and redykolka. All three smoked cheeses are made using the same method — sheep’s milk is curdled, then the curd is formed into balls and placed in wooden moulds — but each has a different shape. Bundz is also popular — a fresh, mild cheese, which, if matured and milled with salt, can be turned…

For all its environmental credentials, this ‘bee-positive’ calvados has wormed its way into my affections for other reasons — specifically, how refreshing it is when mixed with decent tonic and tons of ice.
