Join us for a very special Valentine's Day oyster class in our Long Island City market to learn all there is to know about these curiously delicious bivalves called oysters, and most importantly, how to properly and safely shuck them! Being Valentine's Day, we will also explore the oyster's place as one of the world's most famous aphrodisiacs!

Learn how oysters are grown, what affects an oyster's flavor, and how to truly taste and enjoy the nuances of oysters whether out at your favorite raw bar or a romantic cocktail party for two at home.

Classes are informational and hands-on lessons. You are guaranteed to successfully shuck and taste several varieties of oysters.

This special Valentine's Day class includes prosecco, and an assortment of cheeses, chocolates and fruit for guests to enjoy!

Oysters, oyster knives, gloves, and towels are available for purchase after class.
