There are many reasons to celebrate Oysters Rockefeller Day!
Oysters Rockefeller was a New Orleans dish that was first created in 1889. Jules Alciatore (son of founder Antoine Alciatore) developed it to solve the problem of escargot shortage. Although the restaurant was originally a place that specialized in snail dishes, the scarcity of these led to the need for other kinds of seafood.
This dish features oysters on the half-shell topped with butter, green herbs, and breadcrumbs. Next, the dish can be baked or broiled before being served with lemon wedges. Sometimes, the sauce is made with spinach to give it a rich color.
Oysters Rockefeller is named after John D. Rockefeller, a New York mogul and America’s richest man. He was also the first billionaire in the world. Although it is not known if John D. Rockefeller tried the dish, Oysters Rockefeller was extremely wealthy. Perhaps the name was inspired by the association of dollar bills with the green color.
Oysters Rockefeller Day, which was first celebrated in New Orleans in 2017, was established to honor this unique seafood dish.
