  Fried Oysters with Saffron Aioli

In reading Savorykitchen's recipes, her blog, even her tweets, we get the sense that she really knows what she's talking about. She left the corporate world in 2007 to put her food knowledge to good use, launching a personal chef and catering business in Massachusetts. So when she includes an authentic carrot tzatziki alongside her Ouzo Cured Salmon recipe or recommends using a foodmill for featherlight Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with Buttery Scallions, we know we can trust her.

We could also use some of her Fried Oysters with Saffron Aioli (runner-up in our oyster contest), along with one of her Bicyclettes (a sparkly bitter orange cocktail) right about now -- couldn't you?

    Thanks ladies!

    I have a few classes coming up: a canning workshop on 8/7 (Saturday) and one on Cooking from the Farmers' Market on 8/13 (Friday). Info's here on my website: http://www.thesavorykitchen...

    I have an Indian class this Friday but it's sold out!

    The classes are tons of work, but I love teaching - it's really so much fun for me and everyone seems to have a good time.

    Thanks, Mary! It was such a pleasure to be part of your Indian cooking class: Delightful and delicious. It was also fun to meet the other students- nutritionists, folks from the architecture company who install those fabulous kitchens. Am looking forward to returning next Saturday for your canning class. Btw there are still openings for that one, if any Food52ers in the area are free! That would be fun to meet up.

    Great, Midge. We can have a Food52 eastcoast meet-up. We will have to take some photos!

    What an inspiring business and blog! And you offer classes, too. They would be interesting to try out sometime. I am only a few hours drive away. Keep us posted.

    Wow everyone! I can't believe this - I am in such amazing company. Just making sure y'all know that that pictures of those oysters is one that the Food52ers took. I *wish* my food styling could look anywhere near as good as that.

    Mary is a brilliant cook - so happy to see her profiled here. Those oysters are out of this world, by the way. And a Bicyclette sounds like just what the doctor ordered for this beastly heat, doesn't it?
