About the French Kiss: The French Kiss oysters (Crassostrea virginica) are farm-raised by the fine folks from Neguac, New Brunswick (on Canada's Acadian Peninsula) that also produces the wildly popular Beau Soleil oysters (http://jpshellfish.com/beau_soleil_oysters.php). French Kiss oysters are essentially pumped up (Hear me now and believe me later!) Beau Soleils. Essentially, the French Kiss oysters spend a couple more years than the Beau Soleils under the watchful eyes of our good friends at Maison Beau Soleil, and are allowed to attain a greater size before harvest. French Kisses are deeply cupped, and are that perfect paisley shape all oyster growers strive for. As with the Beau Soleils, meat yields on the French Kisses is nothing less than extraordinary, and the meats themselves lead with a profound salinity, which yields to a mildly sweet finish. The meats are full, and posses a certain degree of body which is complemented by the briny liquor. Both the Beau Soleils and French Kisses are available year-round.
