Oyster shucking class

Oysters! We can teach you all about oysters in our oyster shucking workshop. How to open them, how to eat them, the subtle taste differences, where they come from and how they grow. Our oyster workshop can be held on location somewhere that suits you. Please let us know what you and your group would like to learn during our oyster shucking class, and we will tailor the oyster opening class to your needs. We can, of course, design the course for you if you prefer.

Along with teaching you how to safely and correctly open an oyster, our courses can guide you on how to actually eat them, and which various condiments and dressings compliment them. What kind of occasions do they suit the best? What types of oysters are there? How do you rate their quality? Our oyster shucking class will teach you all about this.

Why choose Red Oyster UK?

Oysters and Wine

Oysters and wine are a classic combination – a delicious food paired with a delicious drink. But that’s not the only thing they have in common. Both are grown and developed using some of the most natural processes in farming. They are influenced by the climate, the region, the earth, and the water. As the French would say – with oysters the taste comes down to the merroir, and with wine, it’s the terroir. We can also bring a selection of wines to complement the oysters and advise and guide you about which pairs best.
