Shucks! Did someone say oysters?

Join acclaimed chef Josh Emett and Oyster Inn head chef Jamie Hogg-Wharekawa, to learn everything you ever wanted to know about this delectable shellfish, but were afraid to ask.

Discover how to shuck and prepare this ocean delicacy, all the while enjoying Waiheke Island’s charming Oyster Inn.

Watch Josh as he demonstrates how to make three classic dressings as well as a basic batter, so you can take the knowledge home to amaze your oyster-enthusiast friends.

With the oysters harvested from Te Matuku Oyster Farm by the pristine Te Matuku Marine Reserve, you won’t find fresher oysters than these little beauties – whose fans include Rick Stein and Martin Bosley.

Following your mollusc masterclass, sit back and relax and enjoy a mouth-watering four-course lunch that will start with natural and fried oysters matched with some of Waiheke’s finest wines.

This event is part of Elemental AKL festival, a collection of events and experiences across Auckland celebrating the culture, cuisine and creativity of Auckland. 14 July – 1 August. Visit
