Hello Oyster Lovers,

When do oysters turn green and become suspects in a murder plot? What do oysters have to do with getting kicked out of your town for 10 years? Learn the answers to these questions and more in an interactive cooking workshop that traverses the history of our most festive bivalve!

On Monday, Dec 12 at 6:30 pm, we'll be meeting in the kitchen at Brooklyn Foodworks ( (630 Flushing Ave, Fl 2; off the G Flushing stop). I'll be demonstrating how to make oyster stuffing (with tastings, of course) and everyone will have a chance to shuck oysters. If you still haven't mastered the art of shucking, this is the perfect opportunity to learn in a low-key environment. We'll venture between celebratory oyster dishes for ancient and modern times, and you'll come away with a new appreciation for the oyster's role in luxurious living.

I am premiering this class for the first time, and it will be a feast for the mind and stomach, so do sign up if you're a curious eater! The fee for this Meetup is $35 to cover materials and venue rental. In an effort to cut down on fees for all of us, I am going to run payments outside of the Meetup website, and will be individually contacting everyone who RSVPs to get online payments. If you RSVP, please include a contact email/phone for this purpose.

Hope to see you there!
