Join us as we get down and dirty with one of our favourite happy hour morsels- oysters!

We all love to eat them, but it’s time we understand just what makes this bivalve so special.

Here to teach us her ways is Oyster sommelier, Julie Qiu. Currently a Skillshare instructor for her Oyster Mastery Class, Julie has sampled oysters from 5 continents, and is the founder of “In a Half Shell,” a blog dedicated to all things bivalve.

  • Learn to shuck oysters like a pro
  • Understand and practise the art of a proper oyster tasting
  • Learn to buy, store, and order oysters
  • Navigate the myths around oysters (are oysters really an aphrodisiac?)
