It's National Oyster Soup Day!
My All-Time favorite Oyster Stew comes from The Oyster Bar at Grand Central Station, NYC!
Sitting there at the counter watching them make it is a delight!
I think there's a difference between Oyster Soup & Oyster Stew
Oyster Soup contains vegetables and may or may not contain Cream.
Oyster Stew contains cream and maybe only finely minced onions or shallots.
I prefer the Stew over the soup.
How about you?
Let's see some recipes!
Here's GCS - NYC
