The pop up gathering is a great opportunity to celebrate the unique Fal oyster receiving protect destination of origin status making the delicacy a new superstar ingredient for Cornwall’s fantastic chef database. These chefs will be on-hand demoing their skills throughout the weekend with plenty of taste testing available! Tuck into a variety of local produce from preserves to seaweed and of course Fal Oysters, Fal Mussels, locally reared steaks and whatever fish and shellfish the local day boats can land on Prince of Wales Pier for the sushi and sashimi.
The Fal Oyster stall sources the best-sized natives from a number of boats and strict traceability means the boat, the skipper, the date and location of each oyster are all recorded. Fal Oyster Ltd. then purifies the oysters on the edge of the fishery in Mylor Yacht Harbour before tempting customers with a unique product: the only oyster with a protected food name.
Take a geek at the itinerary below and make sure you plan a weekend of rather superb shellfish.
