A celebration of the cooked oyster.

In many parts of the world the tradition is to enjoy oysters raw. Whilst this is of course delicious it is not for everyone, so as part of this conference there will be a special culinary event in which delegates can enjoy a range of cooked oysters with a view to encouraging the development of new oyster products for sale into an expanded market.
