Hello Oyster Lovers,
There's just a few spots left for the Littleneck Meetup on Monday night, so if you're interested in raw oysters, fried oyster po boys and ocean broth at Brooklyn's finest seafood shack and raw bar, please sign up today before the deadline!
Also, there's an oyster and Japanese shochu pairing class called "The Odd Couple" coming up on Mon 6/10, taking place at SakaMai (Lower East Side). Not familiar with shochu? It's the distilled counterpart to sake and can be made from a number of raw ingredients (barley, rice, sweet potato, brown sugar and more). These ingredients and aging techniques give each shochu distinct, complex flavors, similar to the character of a single-malt scotch. I'll be teaming up with shochu expert Stephen Lyman to discuss and taste 6 types of oysters and 6 shochus, and we'll explore how to create complementary and contrasting pairings. The tickets are $85, for more details: http://oddcouple.bpt.me
Have a great weekend and I hope it's filled with sun and seafood!
