  • How to shuck an oyster
  • How to properly wash, store, and prepare shellfish
  • Suggested wine and beer pairings
  • Common cooked shellfish recipes.

The class costs $45 unless otherwise noted, and includes the following:

  1. A guided instructional class on the art of shucking oysters and clams
  2. 12-15 oysters or clams to shuck
  3. A complimentary glass of wine or champagne specifically paired with the oyster
  4. A meat, fish, cheese, and bread board specifically themed along with the oyster class
  5. An oyster shucking knife
  6. The Blue Island Oyster Bar “Oyster Bible”: An informational packet of oyster history, anatomy, and growing information designed to make everyone an oyster expert.

Come let the shells fly!
