Oysters 101 with Hama Hama Seafood Company

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $140

Knowing how to shuck your own oyster is one of those life skills that’s essential to Seattle food culture. It’s right up there with cleaning a Dungeness crab or barbecuing a salmon. This class is designed to demystify the Pacific Northwest oyster scene by exploring ways that growing method, location, and oyster species influence shape, seasonality, shuckability, and flavor. Lauren McCool from Hama Hama Seafood Company will teach you how to shuck, and then we’ll proceed through an oyster tasting contrasting and comparing four different kinds of oysters, served with a variety of sauces and condiments. To round out the class and really explore all that oysters have to offer, we’ll pan-fry oysters with tartar and lemon, bake oysters with a variety of flavored butters, go retro with an oyster casserole, and steam clams in a tomato sauce.
