Thursday, September 14: The World Is Your Oyster: Shucking 101

Chef Irv Miller, from our sister restaurant Jackson’s Steakhouse, will present this demonstration. Miller, currently working on his second cookbook tentatively titled “Gulf Coast Pearls: A taste of place like none other,” will share how oysters are grown, what affects an oyster’s flavor, how to truly taste and enjoy the nuances of different oysters and — most importantly, how to properly and safely shuck them! We will get the evening started with a classic oyster shooter and participants shucking a half-dozen oysters. Our team will shuck the other half dozen — representing different regions including our own with Pensacola Bay Oysters. The dozen oysters will be paired with a sparkling Muscadet and Manzanilla sherry, allowing all to taste the differences of the pairings. Participants will each receive oyster shucking-essentials — a shucking knife and glove — to take home. Event will be held on The Deck. $45 per person (plus tax and gratuity)

Each event begins at 5:30 p.m. Seating is limited; reservations are required and can be made by contacting Maria Goldberg —, 850-217-2347.
