Pearls of Wisdom in This Virtual Class

By Florence Fabricant

Oyster expertise in an hour, in a virtual class, is promised by Food Island Partnership, the organization that promotes shellfish from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Patrick McMurray, a champion shucker, will guide the audience in a free event that covers buying and storing oysters, shucking them (with oysters and tools you can purchase in advance to get ready), serving and appreciating them. In addition to oysters and knives, you can also buy Mr. McMurray’s book, “The Oyster Companion.”

Prince Edward Island Oyster Masterclass, 5 p.m., June 8, thesocialshell.com.
