With that said, experts do agree that Fall is the best season to enjoy oysters coming from the Northeast. Thus in our area, September marks the start of oyster season.
I thought it might be fun to share some interesting links to celebrate the start of oyster season.
There are, of course, festivals celebrating the majesty of the oyster. This year's Norwalk Oyster Festival takes place on September 11, 12, 13. You can check out their website for more info here: http://www.seaport.org/page-861468. And, for a listing of oyster festivals outside our CT borders visit The Oyster Guide website.

A post about oysters would not be complete if I did not tell you about a short film I saw at the Food Film Fest in NYC. "The Perfect Oyster" by Craig Noble, premiered at the New York City Food Film Festival www.nycfoodfilmfestival.com in June 2010 Then in 2011, it went on to the Berlin Film Festival in Germany.
