Osoyoos Oyster Fest – A Spring Feast

Spring and oysters go together like love and marriage. Spring is all about new life, fresh energy, and rejuvenation, and what could taste more like spring than an ocean fresh elixir: the oyster.

And after eating an oyster – don’t you just feel rejuvenated. And no wonder, the nutritional benefits of oysters are well known.

Not only are they low fat, high protein, and full of copper, zinc, selenium, iron and the elusive vitamin B12, but as we most fortunately know, they are also aphrodisiacs. Venus herself may have created this creature to provide us with a wonderful source of – nutrition.

But did you know that there are five types of Oyster – each with it’s own unique flavour?
