"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
This is an herbed French vegetable melange that became well known in the United States in the 1970s. Great as a side dish, it also makes a super omelet filling and a topping for low-carb pasta.
