Join chef Cameron Rolka for an oyster shucking and tasting class at Mink. Wine pairing is available and strongly recommended. Class
Class will start with a discussion on everything you need to know about oysters, from varieties, and farming methods, to flavor profiles. While we have a lively discussion talking about oysters, we will also talk about wine pairings that accompany and accentuate these tasty bivalves. Beverage pairing is optional(but strongly recommended).
Pairing will be available to purchase at the door — $30/pp
Once we get all that silly talk out of the way, we get down to business. Chef Cameron will demo proper and safe shucking techniques. Every guest will have their own oysters to practice shucking and tasting ranging across different “merroirs” and harvesting regions. Chef Cameron will be providing one on one instruction as needed. Guests will be able to sip wine, slurp oysters, and dabble with varying combinations of our classic accoutrements.
Everything you need to shuck will be provided.
We will have a wide variety for you to try, and class will conclude with your belly full of oysters, wine, and your new found knowledge (and skills!) about oysters.
Shucking knives available for purchase!
