Oyster Shucking Lessons??
Is there any where in the DC area that you can learn how to shuck oysters? Thanks.
I know of no place in the immediate area, but they give shucking lessons at the St. Mary's County Oyster Festival in the Fall. There are many videos that demonstrate technique, if you just google it. Also, you can watch at open raw bars, like Faidley's at Lexington Market. It really isn't hard, but you need practice to do it efficiently. Good Luck!
Get some oysters and a flat-head screwdriver.
Grab an oyster and stick the business end of the screwdriver in the hinge of the oyster.
Twist until the hinge pops.
Tune in next week, when we'll discuss how to open a beer.
