Join us to enjoy fresh, local oysters, delicious wine, and great conversation! During this event, you'll have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the ecological wonder and culinary possibilities of oysters. Abby Barrows of Long Cove Sea Farm will provide hands-on instruction in how to shuck, serve, and cook oysters. We'll prepare a variety of accompaniments to enjoy with raw oysters, and also prepare oysters on the grill and in the fryer. Your ticket includes a dozen oysters and your very own shucking knife. The event will also include wine pairings.
More about Abby and Long Cove Oysters
Abby was born and raised in Stonington, Maine. She's worked on lobster boats, tall ships, in classrooms, and now in the lab and on the Bay as a marine biologist. Her mission: to improve water quality and increase access to locally grown sustainable seafood. The oysters grow in the productive and cold waters of Long Cove in Deer Isle, Maine. This cove in Penobscot Bay has a long history of seafood harvesting and contines to support a community of lobstermen and clam diggers. The farm floats above a soft seafloor, catching nutrient-rich tides while remaining sheltered by the surrounding islands. For more information, visit Long Cove Oysters.
