Virtual Oyster Shucking Class
"A Starter Kit with 36 fresh oysters from a farm closest to you (East, West, or Gulf Coast farms). This Starter Kit also includes 2 Oyster Shuckers, a Dutch Towel, and an Oyster Bag. This is easily enough for 2 persons to learn shucking oysters. In the days towards the online class, you receive a series of emails on how to unpack, clean, and store the oysters.
We also share recipes for the condiments and some preferred pairings. Now, you are ready for the online Oyster Experience. It’s a fun class in which you learn how to shuck oysters, but students also share questions they always wanted to ask about oysters. Oysters XO also offers shucking tutorials if you don’t want to join an online class.
The Virtual Oyster Shucking Class is not just fun and educational, it became very relevant in the support of Oyster Farmers. Over 90% of the farmed oysters are sold through the restaurants, now that the restaurants are closed, the farmers lost almost all their sales. It’s time for America to learn how to shuck oysters at home as is done in many countries around the world.
It’s simple and it’s a great social celebration comparable to the British teatime or the French apéro. Oysters XO, famous for the Oyster Girls & Guys roaming your life events with buckets of oysters around their waist shucking a fresh oyster to order, started 3 years ago with Oyster Socials, at the James Beard House and The Plaza Hotel among many other venues."
