Thursday, September 20: The World Is Your Oyster

Donnie McMahon of Pensacola Bay Oyster Company will lead this demonstration along with Chef Irv Miller, from our sister restaurant Jackson’s Steakhouse. Pensacola Bay Oysters will share with the group the entire farming process of these boutique oysters from seed to the final product. Class participants will be taken down to the dock behind the Fish House to observe the oyster cages and learn how the magic happens. 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.  Chef Irv will use a big open-air roaster and show participants how it works. Participants will be able to enjoy both raw and smoked Pensacola Bay Oysters as well as Louisiana oysters on the big grill. The oysters will be paired with a sparkling Muscadet, sweet brown beer and a sparkling, allowing all to taste the differences of the pairings. Participants will each receive Pensacon Bay Oyster swag to take home.
