The Saint Kerber Tasting Box features 4pcs (each) of their best oysters - La 1930, Tsarskaya, and Murigen oysters. These oysters are considered by many around the world to be the creme de la creme of what the ocean has to offer.
These oysters are best consumed fresh. While there are many good oyster recipes in the world, due to the quality of these oysters one would be remiss if not to experience the exacting standards and freshness delivered from the shores of Cancale to one’s home.
Simply shuck these oysters using an oyster blade and consume as is. Or do as the French do and serve with wedges of lemon (or any citrus - try calamansi for a unique oyster experience) and serve as is.
Pair this wonderful tasting box with a breathtaking bottle of Champagne Pierre Paillard Les Parcelles Bouzy Grand Cru. The delicate palate of pears and apple pear very well with the intensity that the oysters have to offer.
Oysters are serious business in Cancale. Oysters were apparently first harvested in Cancale 2000 years ago after the invasion of the Romans.
SInce then, oysters have morphed into something more than a delicacy - it is almost a religion to the oyster farmers of Cancale. It is considered a sin to eat an oyster that is not alive to the farmers of this exquisite region.
To check if an oyster is living, simply give it a little poke. If it flinches, it is fresh and ready to be consumed.
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.
