Patara Restaurants Celebrates The Oyster Festival

Fine-dining Thai restaurant Patara has collaborated with Maldon Oysters to celebrate the Oyster 
Festival with two new oyster dishes on its menu, which will be available at all four Patara restaurants in London throughout October and November 2011.

Patara’s chefs have created two new oyster dishes, combining traditional Thai cuisine with excellent seasonal produce from Maldon Oysters. The Rock Oysters (Three: £5.50; Six: £9.50) will be presented in two ways – raw and cooked, in the following styles:

Maldon Rock Oysters with mint, coriander, lemongrass, Thai vinaigrette, lemon and crisp shallots.

Maldon Rock Oysters deep-fried in soda batter served in its shell with bean-sprout and chilli sauce.

Champagnes by the bottle available to enjoy with the oysters include Moutard Brut Reserve (£35.80); Laurent Perrier Brut (£56.20); Veuve Cliquot Rosé (£66.40); Moet et Chandon (£148.10).

About Maldon Oysters

The Maldon Oyster and Seafood Company, established in 1960, is now one of the largest producers of Pacific oysters in the UK, with 3,500 acres of the River Blackwater under its management. All Maldon oysters are cleansed in water that passes through an ultraviolet filter system to kill any bacteria that may have been present at time of harvest. This process is monitored by the local health authority and DEFRA. www.maldonoyster.com
