We’re excited to introduce a new TFL video series: Life Skills with Molly and Catherine. In the first episode, they visit Fort Point to meet up with Row 34 and Island Creek Oyster Bar partner Shore Gregory for an oyster-shucking lesson.

To put your newfound shucking skills to use, enter our giveaway to win The Starter Pack from Island Creek Oysters, which includes two dozen oysters, a shucking knife, and shucking gloves. If you’d like to show these guys some extra love, head to islandcreekoysters.com to order all kinds of seafood, shucking tools, and merch—whether for yourself or someone who could use more oysters, clams, or caviar in their life. (Couldn’t we all?)

Don’t forget the fixins! If you’re looking for an easy-to-make mignonette, try this favorite recipe from local chef Jeremy Sewall.

For more on Row 34 and ICOB, check out the second episode of our podcast, which featured partner and executive chef Jeremy Sewall. Jeremy shares his love letter to New England seafood, his hot take on the term “sustainable fishing,” and tips for buying the very best fish to cook at home. After tuning in, try tackling his easy-but-impressive recipe for Steamed Mussels and Clams with White Wine and Chorizo.
