What is an oyster if not the perfect food? It requires no preparation or cooking. Cooking would be an affront. It provides its own sauce. It's a living thing until seconds before disappearing down your throat, so you know - or should know - that it's fresh. It appears on your plate as God created it: raw, unadorned.

Cooking Tip of the Month: Preparing pumpkin pie in advance

Pumpkin pie filling and pie crust can be prepared in advance, and frozen separately for up to one month. Defrost the pumpkin filling, then poured it into the frozen crust and bake as usual. If you use a glass pie plate, defrost the crust as well.
