FNO final

And so it is that we come to the end of the oyster season – just another few weeks of glorious bivalves and then you’ll have to wait until autumn.

To celebrate – or commiserate, we’re not sure which – we’re throwing an oyster party on Friday November 7 from 6.30pm at Michael Lett’s newish gallery just off Karangahape Road, along with our good friends from Mahurangi Oysters, Catalina Sounds and Sabato. There will be a mountain of oysters and plenty of Marlborough sauvignon blanc.

Tickets are $36.50 and are available via this very handy PayPal link. We’d love to see you there!

    How would one define “mountain”? Is this a small and somewhat delicate personal climb of your own oyster mountain, or a first in first served suck- it – back and claw your way to the top to get as many oysters as humanly possible before anyone else type of mountain?

    I’m personally a every mountain is a personal battle type of lass, so I gotta wonder if this type of mountain is for a gal like me, ya know?

    Thanks! x

    It’s definitely a collective mountain. Put it this way, the last time we had an oyster party, the oyster farmers went home and left us with a knife and a pile of oysters… I’m pretty sure there will be plenty. Though we do like to encourage enjoyment in moderation of what is a limited resource, in the company of some varied and interesting people… So we’d rather people didn’t come and hoover as many as they can!
