3 Dozen Food52 Oyster Sampler
Sample some of the best.
SHIPS EXPRESS OVERNIGHT ONLY.
This spread of oysters has a range of flavors—but they all share the high quality that Island Creek is known for. You'll get a dozen of each of the following:
Island Creeks (Duxbury, MA): With a highly segmented flavor profile, these are the quintessential East Coast oysters. Strong salinity up front gives way to vegetal, mossy, buttery flavors of eel grass and seaweed. With a robust, sweet finish, it doesn't get any better than this.
Wellfleets (Wellfleet, MA): The water in Wellfleet is slightly warmer and less salty than Duxbury. Grown at the mouth of a creek running from a salt pond, these oysters, while still salty, are a bit more mild. They have a strong umami note with a well-defined adductor muscle and a nice texture.
Aunt Dottys (Duxbury, MA): Despite being grown in the same body of water as the Island Creeks, these oysters are altogether different. The shell is lighter and the beautiful plump meats have a simultaneously sweet and bitter flavor.
