Oyster Cloyster Demo and Chef Garnett Black
I am the chef coordinator this year for the 2011 Oyster Cloyster , a benefit to support the Aquarium Sciences Program at Oregon Coast Community College. Chefs participate in a oyster competition and must come up with a hot or cold oyster dish that is judged by a panel of peers and the public. One of a kind glass trophies are made by The Edge Art Gallery in South Beach for the winners; it’s a fun event and for a worthy cause.
During the first week in October, I partnered with Chef Garnett Black, a long-running participant and winner in the chef competition, to provide oyster recipe demonstrations from the 10th annual Oyster Cloyster cookbook. The following photos are from the demo at the Culinary Center in Lincoln City. The dishes were Chef Black’s Asian Rouge Rumaki Oyster recipe from 2009 and Chef Enrique Sanchez/Bruce Jackson’s Happy Curry Oyster Clouds from 2007. Enjoy!
