There are only 5 species of oyster in the whole world; the hardest to find and most expensive are Belons named after a river in France that was famous for them; then oyster lovers have special words: never say salty but briny; say terroir and not waters, don’t say oyster juice but say liquor; and then the firm favorite known by most is that they are proven to be an aphrodisiac as they are rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones.
