Where we taught
Oyster Girls & Guys taught on TV, oyster class at The Plaza, James Beard House, Maison Premiere and Miami SOBEWFF among others. And now we are going to teach you.
Our academy is taught by our very own professional Oyster Chefs who shuck for the culinary elite of New York and Los Angeles. Aside from learning the Oysters XO style of shucking, guests will learn how to identify the flavors in premium oysters and taste which champagnes and wines pair brilliantly with them.
Our aim is to teach America how to shuck; one oyster at a time!
