What can a poor boy and a Rockefeller have in common? Everything -if you guessed the bodacious bivalve beloved in the Big Easy. John DeMers, Publisher of EASYFOOD magazine, and Andrew Jaeger, the third generation of a New Orleans seafood restaurant family, have joined forces for the best little book on this slippery subject. For the experienced purist or the enthusiastic novice who wants to slurp'em down raw, they offer essentials for purchasing, cleaning, and shucking. Try your favorites or your local variety sauteed, smoked, grilled, barbecued, baked, deep or pan fried, in a stew, a po'boy, or a peacemaker
