Truly a culinary pearl

The first time I tried Greg Garrett's forbidden oysters, my taste buds were amazed. I am a culinary professional working in the restaurant industry in Los Angeles, CA. I have tried many oysters from all over. I understand that each oyster is different and the terroir, just like in a fine wine, plays a large part in the greatness in flavor. Forbidden oysters are magical in the sense that they are well-balenced: just the right amount of salty and sweet, with a great creamy texture. I have not found a comparable oyster to these. I had a great opportunity to visit Mr. Garrett's oyster farm. This beautiful farm is well-maintained and truly handled with love and care. Scott, the oyster farmer, is extremely knowledgable about the art and understanding of harvesting oysters, and he works so hard! I did not get to meet Mr. Garrett, as he is a hard-working and busy individual, but his wife Libby was so sweet and hospitable as I toured their family farm. As a culinarian, it is always a major concern that our ingredients, especially seafood are maintained in a clean and well-maintained environment. After visiting the farm, I am confident in saying that forbidden oysters are truly a culinary gem. They are some of the most flavorful oysters, I have ever tasted, and the farm is cleanly maintained with love and respect for the oysters. So don't forbid your tastebuds from trying Greg Garret's family oysters! Don't just take my word for it, shuck some and find out!
