James Beard Oyster Classes

In 2017 we did our first James Beard House “Shuck like a Rockstar Oyster & Champagne Social”, with 55 guests learning about oysters and shucking the oysters themselves. It became one of the most successful and fun every 2-month program ever. It’s an honor to be in the House that build up the Culinary America, of course, and to teach supporters of the house that pay generously for the class to support the foundation.

Ready to Shuck?

All you need is … oysters, a shucker and skills. All the above are available in the SHOP. Premium Local and National oysters overnighted to your kitchen. And whether you have skills or not, America’s #1 Oyster Chef Rifko Meier, is here to assist you to become a shucking Rockstar. Check out the shop for the Starter Kit if it’s your first time or to Oyster Shop if you got some technique already.

Learn Oysters

We now live by the tagline “Every Oyster You Enjoy, Gives Love, Life and Happiness”. Oysters do so much for your health, the farmers, ocean life and it makes everyone happy as well. I will teach you this life skill in a few minutes and you get to teach your friends and family next. Let’s do it.

1.Cleaning and Storing oysters

Once the oysters are dropped on your doorstep, you want to give the oysters a scrub. It’s like cleaning your strawberries or mushrooms.

They arrive clean, but you want to make them “your” clean. Ready to order some Farm Fresh Oysters?

Put the oysters in a plastic bag. Close the plastic bag airtight. Store the plastic bag with the oysters in the refrigerator until you are ready to enjoy the oysters. Oysters hibernate in the fridge, so they don't need to breath.

2. Oysters Shucking Class

This is the best party trick ever. My friends ask me to bring a bag of oysters for their birthdays.

Use the 5 step technique of how to shuck an oyster.

The oysters are packed in a bag with ice packs around it. The knife and towel are packed separately. Take out the oysters and keep the gear separate and dry. You don’t need it yet.
