With her latest book, the author of French Women Don't Get Fat and French Women for All Seasons continues her generous campaign to lure us all to Paris. In this case, it's all for a good cause: Clearly, Mireille Guiliano can communicate the lure of French cuisine. Meet Paris Oyster, her new book, invites us to indulge ourselves in what most of us regard as a rarely sampled delicacy. To achieve that purpose, she introduces us to Huîtrerie Régis, a tiny Parisian restaurant with only fourteen seats and just one specialty; but under Guiliano's artful scrutiny, this oyster eatery becomes both a showcase for a gastronomic specialty and a charming window into a fascinating food culture. Gracefully composed, this book interweaves the best features of a cookbook, an introduction to an unfamiliar shellfish, and another welcome peek into a much-wished-for destination.
