    Sea Plane dwarfs the oyster barge! This morning pilot Chuck and his trusty steed “Maggie” (the Kenmore Air / Evening Magazine sea plane) landed on the oyster farm… successfully dodging buoys, tumble bags, and our barge. It was quite exciting. Meeghan Black, the host of Evening Magazine, and her camera man / partner in crime […]

    Few things are as elemental as wood and shellfish… humans have been using both for a long, long time. At Hama Hama we carry on this tradition, managing the beach and the uplands together to support livelihoods, create beauty, and provide sustenance. It’s a chop wood / carry water / eat oysters kind of life. […]

    There are at least three versions of the Hama Hama Song: Grandma Penny’s classic, the Bollywood ridiculous, and, now, Guster’s rock version: “… and we slept on an oyster farm, b**ches!”

    From this lovely blog: Four kinds: hama hama (Hood Canal, Washington), kumamoto (Humboldt Bay, Cailfornia), island creek (Duxbury, Massachusetts), wellfleet (Cape Cod, Massachusetts).

    From the blog Food, She Thought: I worship the oyster, but a creamy oyster grosses me out. Hamas, in my opinion, are beautiful bivalve perfection. Good for eating raw, yet substantial enough for cooking. Hama Hama Oyster with Lemon Foam

    We happen in Vegas

    August 26, 2008

    What made Conde Nast Traveler’s list of ways to behave gluttonously in Vegas? That’s right. A Hama Hama oyster shooter. As the magazine puts it: Save the Hama-Hama shooter, a cocktail-like concoction of citrus ponzu, sake, scallions, daikon, and raw quail yolk, for last. Of course, savvy Vegas visitors will wait until October to indulge […]
