The beauty of oysters is that they mean something different to each individual who enjoys this special bivalve. To some, Oysters represent summer; eating self-shucked oysters in a bathing suit on the beach with a glass or rose or a cold brew. To others, oysters are the perfect happy hour snack to enjoy at their local raw-bar after a long day at the office. To a few, oysters are luxurious aphrodiasiacs to enjoy on special occasions, at a white tablecloth service.
Now, with the help of Chefs Ed Brown and Justin Rowe from Ed's Chowder House in New York City, it's time to open that saved bottle of bubbly and turn your dining room into a 5 star restaurant, with Oysters and Caviar as your signature dish.
Down to shuck but don't know how? Click here to check out our tips for self shucking! Looking for someone else to do the work? You can always ask your shellfish monger at your local seafood store to shuck your oyster for you. Just make sure they are kept on ice, and you don't have to travel far. So in other words, we don't reccommend you bringing home pre-shucked oysters on the subway, in July.
