For 42 months, the French Speciales Geay Oysters are moved from one park to another so they get all the best nutrients. This is Geay’s favorite oyster, and they are fleshy, with a crisp bite.
These oysters are exceptionally meaty. Their mild, subtly sweet flavor is balanced with a lightly salted taste with nutty notes. This relatively mild taste makes the French Speciales by Geay a very accessible oyster, and will appeal to most everyone.
Enjoy these beautiful oysters freshly shucked, with just a squeeze of lemon. You can also grill them, or bake them with cheese.
The Geay family began their oyster empire in 1874, on the harbor of La Tremblade in Charente Maritime. Eutrope Geay and his son, George, were popular in the local markets, thanks to their superior oysters and their unending charisma. Passed down through generations, the company has gone from local markets to delivering throughout France to new techniques and worldwide repute. The Geays are still in the Marennes-Oléron basin at present day, and is now the oyster company with the most certifications in the world.
Store your box of fresh, unshucked oysters in your fridge, keeping the temperature between 0 to 5°C. Keep them covered with a damp cloth, flat side up, to increase shelf-life. To enjoy them at their freshest, please consume them within 48 hours.
When you’re ready to shuck your oysters, take a sharp knife (a vegetable knife or, ideally, an oyster shucking knife) and hold the oyster, round-side down and pointed side facing you, between a tea towel. Wiggle the knife into the pointy end and twist it until the shell comes open.
