Pre-Ordered Air-flown Live French Spéciale Oysters by David Hervé

Essential Atlantic Sweetness

This line of fresh oys­ters from cura­tor-aqua­cul­tur­ist com­pa­ny David Hervé has a del­i­cate sweet­ness that makes it appeal­ing to even those new to the art and delight of this culi­nary gem.


David Hervé’s Spé­ciale oys­ters are a seafood plate clas­sic, cul­ti­vat­ed for their sweet­ness. This comes from years of care­ful breed­ing in the Atlantic coast, where their shells have a unique green hue. The bal­anced, light­ly salty taste is com­ple­ment­ed by gen­er­ous hazel­nut notes. The mild­ness of this par­tic­u­lar breed makes it uni­ver­sal­ly acces­si­ble, a delight for con­nois­seurs, novices, and even curi­ous children.


The oys­ter, that del­i­ca­cy from the sea, is clas­si­cal­ly enjoyed in its nat­ur­al state, fresh­ly shucked and with just a squeeze of lemon on top. Oth­er accou­trements are the toma­to-based cock­tail sauce or red wine vine­gar mignonette. For those who pre­fer their oys­ters cooked, cheese top­pings and aro­mat­ics are a pop­u­lar way to go.


The Hervé fam­i­ly has been farm­ing oys­ters for three gen­er­a­tions in the Marennes-Oléron Basin, a nat­ur­al region between the sea and marsh­es that make it Europe’s biggest cen­ter for oys­ter farm­ing. Oys­ters from this area are the only ones in France that have received the Label Rouge award of quality.
