THIS IS WHAT I FOUND.
- Entertaining Essentials: Host an Oyster Shucking Party!
By Anne Sage
“Fresh off my trip to North Carolina, I’ve been reminded once again that folks do things a bit differently in the south than here in go-go Los Angeles. The days move a little more slowly; the cocktails and the laughter flow a little more freely; and maybe it was just me, but the sun seems to sink a little more lazily into the horizon each night. The atmosphere below the Mason Dixon line fosters a laissez-faire sophistication that we West Coasters often try to recreate but can’t quite imitate. Yet it doesn’t stop us from trying!”

Author : Julia Sullivan
Plan your presentation. If you have plenty of entertaining space, set up an oyster bar or shucking station. Either way, you need a large vessel of ice to display your oysters, shucked or unshucked. Place a clean towel underneath to avoid puddles of condensation and melted ice. If you’re tight on space, make sure you have some serving pieces on hand so can place trays of oysters around the party to refill periodically. Store shucked oysters on sheet trays in the refrigerator to keep them cold and line the serving pieces with rock salt instead of ice. If you provide discard bowls for your shells, the salt will stay clean and dry throughout the party (no melting!). Place small plates, cocktail napkins, and garnishes nearby.
