Shuck of the Week: Mirada Bay and Warren's Cove Oysters

Shuck of the Week: Mirada Bay and Warren's Cove Oysters

This week, we took a look at Mirada Bay Oysters from Hood Canal, WA and Warren's Cove Oysters from Plymouth, MA. The Miradas have been in here regularly, so we wanted to make sure we were selling quality oysters. Warren's Cove is a new variety for us, so I was excited to shuck them!

Shuck of the Week: Coromandel and Chincoteague Oysters

Shuck of the Week: Coromandel and Chincoteague Oysters

I've been meaning to shuck a few Coromandel Oysters because it's the first time we're carrying another New Zealand oyster besides the Kaipara. Last week, I sampled a new Mid-Atlantic oyster that was quite yummy, so I was curious if other oysters like Chincoteagues were comparable. Read on to see my tasting notes.

Shuck of the Week: Cotuit Bay and Salt Nugget Oysters

A lot of Massachusetts product has been limited lately, but the Cotuit Bays have been coming in with strong numbers, so I wanted to see what they looked like inside. Salt Nuggets just started again, and since we had issues with spawny oysters, I wanted to give them a check as well. Read more for my shucking notes.

Winter is finally over! And with spring here, the ice has finally dissipated, and oysters are pumping again.
