Crack open the world of oyster connoisseurs and collect pearls of wisdom at Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar in Marietta. Chef/owner Doug Turbush and sous chef Will Puryear pry open a bed of bivalve knowledge at their Oyster 101 Workshop at the restaurant on Saturday, April 14. Soak up how-tos: shuck like a pro; prepare oysters at home; appreciate oyster flavor profiles; oyster history and sustainability; and oyster etiquette. Employ tasting sheets and a tasting wheel to stimulate oyster “merroir” discussion when enjoying a selection of six raw oyster varieties along with a glass of sparkling wine for workshop “students” ages 21 and over. Class begins at 3 p.m. on the dot and concludes by 4:30 p.m. so attendees can dive right into an exclusive Oyster 101 Happy Hour marked by half-price oysters. Class size caps at 24 participants. Buy tickets now or you’ll be saying “Awe, shucks, missed that boat.” $45 per person plus small online service fee. Know before you go: Drift Fish House & Oyster Bar is the first restaurant in Georgia to be an official partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program. Drift’s ship-shape crew is committed to procuring the highest quality, sustainable seafood available, encouraging healthy oceans for generations to come.
