One of my clients once said, “Nobody likes oysters on the first try”. True. I also did not like them neither on the first try, nor on the second and nor on the third one: however after visiting the French town Cancale I found out that I have tried the oysters in the wrong places.

Do you know the “R” rule for the oysters? You should eat them only in those months, which have the letter R in the names: January, February, March, April, September, October, November and December. But if you want to try the real fresh oysters at any time of a year, you need to go to the place, where they inhabit or where they are being grown. The French town Cancale in Brittany (don’t confuse with the Great Britain) is one of such places. So that’s what we did: the seaside town Cancale, considered as French “oysters capital” was among the spots to visit during our trip around Normandy and Brittany.
