Oyster Boy with Adam Colquhoun and special guest Steve Abrams
The new year is soon upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with an ode to the magical oyster? The Tasting Club is thrilled to welcome Adam Colquhoun (proprietor, Oyster Boy, www.oysterboy.ca), the original hard-livin' Oyster Boy, for a deluxe version of his (in)famous Shuck-U oyster classes. Adam will guide you through an in-depth tasting of oysters from Canada and beyond (along with some "guest mollusks"). On the roster so far... Souris PEI, the famous Colville Bay oyster grown by the Flynns; The Emerald Oyster, grown at the mouth of Aspy Bay in Cape Breton; The Courtesan Oyster, a lusty bit of nourishment grown by Brent Petkau, a.k.a. "The Oysterman of Cortes Island, BC"; and the Acadian Oyster "Caraquet" grown by Gaetan Dugas, a fifth generation oyster-grower. And that's just to name a few. You gotta admire a guy whose lifetime goal is to make the oyster "the chicken wing of the new millenium." Beer
selections from Mill St. Brewery with special guest Steve Abrams (www.millstreetbrewery.com) guarantee good times to be had by all. Oyster tasting with snacks and beer tasting.
