Food Flashes

continued (page 3 of 3)

Surprise your friends with new foods and prove yourself a woman of untrammeled ideas. Pass salted oyster nuts from British East Africa, the strangest edible yet. A nut flat as a pancake, selling at the Vendôme Table Delicacies, 415 Madison Avenue, shelled and salted, $2.50 a pound, or $1.50 for those in shell. Some like the nut as an accompaniment with wine, as the green almond is used. But we like it toasted and lightly salted to serve as a tea-table treat or to pass with cocktails.
