Jonathan Swift is quoted as having said, “He was a bold man that first ate an oyster,” but evidence of oyster consumption goes back to prehistoric times.
Oysters were an important food source in all coastal areas where they could be found, and oyster fisheries were an important industry where they were plentiful. Like a fine wine, raw oysters have complex flavours that vary greatly among varieties and regions: salty, briny, buttery, metallic, or even fruity. Join us as we learn about all of these tasty bivalves.
You will learn how to select, store, shuck, prepare, eat and even cook oysters from both the East and West Coast. You will be given 18 oysters each to perfect your shucking skills and you will discover how oysters pair with spirits, champagne, white wine, craft beer, and cocktails as the afternoon progresses.
We will even give you your very own oyster knife to take home so you can impress your friends by showing them what a talented mother shucker you are!
