January 2018 Lecture
Abigail Carroll, Nonesuch Oysters: Oysters & Merroir
(Oyster tasting 6:30 – 7:00!! Lecture following)
January 24th, 2018
Cabela’s Scarborough, Maine Store (100 Cabela’s Blvd.)
Lecture held to the left as you enter, in the Penobscot room.
Borrowed from the vintner expression “terroir” to refer to the effect of land on wine grapes, Merroir refers to the characteristics of the marine environment in which an oyster is grown, and its effect on the oyster itself—especially taste. Listen to our board member, Abigail, and learn why oysters raised in Scarborough Marsh waterways differ from those raised elsewhere in Maine and the world. And find out how the little oyster can truly help save the aquatic world! Make sure to arrive early for a chance to taste some of these delicious oysters provided by Nonesuch Oyster.
FOSM is very grateful to Cabela’s of Scarborough for hosting this month’s lecture.
