Raven lady is participating in the Osoyoos Oyster Festival this weekend! It’s been an oyster plethora, as we’ve been tasting oysters from around the world along with our good friends from Effingham. Our offering to the festival being our signature smoked oyster topped with blue cheese and pickled onion on a cracker.

A world champion shucker as the fastest shucker in the world at 38 shucked oysters in one minute, and author with his book Consider the Oyster. It was a pleasure to meet him and recognize that ones passion can change the world through doing what one loves!
