I was honored that B&G asked me to judge the shucking competition (along with the incomparable Annie Copps), and between my hourly duties I made the rounds of each oyster station, slurping and sampling my way along the street, down in the garden-patio, throughout the interior of B& G Oysters, and across the street along Lynch’s the Butcher Shop. (Apologies in advance to any vendors I may have missed in the crowds. And mea culpa, dear chefs, if I describe your creations and misreport an ingredient detail.)
Oh yeah, and the wine was fab too.
Many thanks to all involved, especially the B&G staff who all deserve a round of applause (and a nice big bonus check) for keeping things running so smoothly and with a smile.
