Valentine’s Day is around the corner and oysters are in season. Since we’ve already got you covered with ideas aplenty about what to get your special friend for Valentine’s Day, now here’s Tom Stocks of Taylor Shellfish to teach you how to shuck an oyster.
Stocks–bivalve boss, shucker supreme–was filmed in Seattle about a mile from the beautiful headquarters of legendary outdoor brand Filson (check out the Filson x Taylor collab here). He took us step by step through shucking the safest and smartest way possible.
Then he blew our minds by blindfolding himself and shucking five different oysters in one minute, correctly identifying them all by feel.
