"Three things that I love in this world are oysters, champagne and an inspiringly beautiful cookbook. The P&J Oyster Cookbook has all three and then some: a fais do-do of oysters in every way, the champagne that I opened the moment I turned its first pages and a brilliant new approach to food photography that magnificently shows off a critter that is famously difficult to look like something with which you must rush out and have a gastronomic affair."
--Jeremiah Tower

"This cookbook is a great survey of the culinary possibilities of the bivalve. P&J Oysters is the primary reason New Orleans is the American capital of oysterdom. And New Orleans is the primary reason so many Americans eat oysters."
--Leopold Froehlich, Playboy magazine

"There is no one better to have chronicled New Orleanians' love of oysters than the Sunseri family from whom my family has bought oysters for sixty-five-plus years. These recipes burst off the page with the Sunseris' passion for our Louisiana oysters. I've always said my last meal would be an oyster po' boy-dressed. Now I know what several of the meals leading up to that one will be."
--Ti Adelaide Martin, Commander's Palace, Café Adelaide and the Swizzle Stick Bar

"Mollusks are featured in every conceivable incarnation--stopping just short of dessert. . . . Yum."
--Louisiana Cookin' magazine

"This is the real deal."
--New Orleans Times-Picayune

"Wohl's masterpiece is loaded with oyster recipes from some of the world's most famous restaurants and the photography is stunning."
--Flavors and More magazine

"The bivalves hit on all cylinders in artist/author Kit Wohl's beautifully photographed and richly referenced P&J Oyster Cookbook."
--Lafayette (LA) Independent Weekly

"We should all put our hands together for the timely release of The P&J Oyster Cookbook, lovingly created by Kit Wohl and the Sunseri Family with special thanks to contributing local restaurants and chefs whose recipes were included in this spectacular, mouth-watering tome."
--NewOrleans.com

"Dozens and dozens of recipes alongside good-enough-to-eat photos teach you how to prepare these savory mollusks raw, grilled, fried, baked, in a gumbo or in a pie."
--New Orleans Magazine

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

New Orleans's long-time love affair with the oyster has produced this cookbook, from one of the city's oldest oyster purveyors, showcasing the best ways to enjoy its star shellfish. With the help of local food writer Wohl, P&J Oyster owners the Sunseris asked local chefs for their favorite oyster dishes, and received a bounty as rich as the mollusk itself. Organized by preparation method (raw, baked, grilled, fried, and incorporated into other dishes), this volume offers almost a hundred methods for preparing oysters, from classics like oyster dressing, gumbo and po-boys to garlic-and-lemon grilled, in rich Oyster Biscuit Pudding , or Stewed in Cream. Purists will enjoy iconic dishes like the original Oysters Rockefeller, invented at New Orleans's Antoines restaurant in the 1800s, Angels on Horseback, and simply, classically-presented raw oysters on the half shell. Generously accompanied by color photos of most finished dishes, as well as sauces and seasonings, this luscious collection will give any oyster fan reason to celebrate.
