Slow Food New Orleans


Louisiana leads the nation in oyster production, but how does all this bounty stack up against pricier oysters from the Pacific Northwest? Slow Food New Orleans hosts a comparative tasting this Tuesday, Oct. 20, at the Uptowner (438 Henry Clay Ave.) to find out. "Oyster Bill" Whitbeck, co-author of The Joy of Oysters and manager of Puget Sound's Taylor Shellfish in Washington state, will present his region's bivalves, and Sal Sunseri from the French Quarter-based P & J Oyster Co. will handle the local variety. Doors at 6 p.m., $20 per person. To register, email
