2023 Valentine's Package
Planning a romantic evening this Valentine's season? Save the hard work for dessert, and keep the main course (and the cleanup!) simple with this tasty package.
A variation on our 2x2 box, this contains 2 dozen oysters to eat raw (1 dz Blue Pools, and 1 dz Hamamotos) and 2 pounds of manila clams for a main course. All you need to do is procure bread, lemon, and maybe something sparkling to drink.
Hamamotos are our home-grown kumamoto oyster, meaning they're a different species than the oyster we usually sell. Kumamotos are famous for their small stature, naturally deep-cupped shells, and sweet, friendly flavor. Our supply is limited, and we're harvesting them specifically for these Valentine's Day packages, so shipping options are limited.... just pick a delivery date through the drop down list!
This package contains:
- 2 pounds of manila clams
- 1 dz Blue Pool oysters
- 1 dz Hamamoto oysters
- 2 oz sumac mignonette
- shucking instructions & tasting notes for the raw oysters
Prepare for this meal by touching up on your clam steaming techniques and finding a steamed clam recipe. And, if you don't have a good oyster knife or gloves, be sure to add them to your order... a mid-dinner scramble to find a first aid kit might ruin the mood.
Remember that consuming raw or undercooked shellfish increases the risk of foodborne illness.
