What the Manolo Is…

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, it is late on the Tuesday, but here is what the Manolo is…

Reading…

Listening to…

Reading…

Long has the Manolo been the student of the history of the oyster in America, and especially of the “sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells” at the end of the 19th century, the idea of which to the Manolo seemed so wonderfully democratic. And so naturally it was with the great eagerness that the Manolo picked up the new book by the Mark Kurlansky. Of the course, what could be more enjoyable than pairing this book with the delights of the M.F.K. Fisher?

    I’m a total philistine. I think that oysters taste like seaweed-scented boogers. And yes, I have tasted boogers before. (*curtseys*)

    I am dying to have time to read the Oyster book–love that Mark Kurlansky!

    Manolo, we all know you have fantastic taste in shoes, but you also excel at choosing books and music.

    How appropriate that I ate a mess of oysters just last night, and then washed them down mightily with a bottle of White Star!!! Heavenleeeeeeeeee!!! We’re so blessed with the Beautiful Creatures of the Sea here in the Pacific Northwest!

    Mannolo – speaking of oyters – if you ever come to Boston please allow myself and Gorgeous Things treat you to fresh oysters at the Union Oyster House (opened 1826)…you can still sit at the same raw bar that Daniel Webster did.

    Pairing with the delights of the M.F.K. Fisher is an excellent basis for choosing a book. “How To Cook A Wolf” was the first food book I ever read for the enjoyment of the writing.

    Manolo, have you read “Domesticity”, by Bob Shacochis? It’s quite different than M.F.K. Fisher, but he says he was inspired by Ms. Fisher. And there are some good shellfish recipes in it, as well as other good recipes.
