Oysters 'perfect for a Valentine's Day treat'
Published on 29/01/2013

People who are thinking about how to treat their loved one this Valentine's Day may want to rustle up a luxurious dish such as oysters.

According to This is Essex, the speciality goodies are deemed to be upmarket because of the time and intensity that goes into farming them and their unusual flavour and texture means they are suited to more matured palates.

The publication stated oysters can only be sold from September to April and as the middle of February approaches, sales are likely to be higher, given the delicacy's reputation as an aphrodisiac.

People could cook up a storm using a fresh batch of oysters or pack them as part of a gourmet hamper - either way, they're likely to win over the hearts of anyone with a taste for the finer things in life.

Alternatively, the news provider suggested taking a loved one out to experience oysters in a fine dining house or gastropub, as the county is renowned for farming both the rock oyster and the celebrated Colchester Native Oyster off its shores, which may have made their way into the kitchens of local eateries.
