Ninth Day of Ford’s Christmas – Wicked Pissah Oysters

On the Ninth Day of Ford’s Christmas, you’ll learn about the Wicked Pissah Oysters, which are harvested exclusively for Ford’s Fish Shack.

From Chef Tony

The Wicked Pissah oyster are one of three oyster varieties that are grown exclusively for Ford’s Fish Shack. We’re proud to work with local waterman and have forged a partnership with a number of suppliers in our region. Virginia is the largest producer of farm-raised oysters on the East Coast, providing eight regions of distinctive flavor.

One of our local partners is Brad Blymier of War Shore Oyster Company. I knew we wanted to work with a local farmer to cultivate a Virginia oyster that was exclusive to Ford’s Fish Shack and Brad helped to facilitate this. He did some research and made connections with local farmers in the Chesapeake area of Virginia. We partnered with Nottingham Oyster Farm in Cherrystone Inlet, Virginia to cultivate the Wicked Pissah Oysters.

Flavor Profile
The Wicked Pissah Oyster is perfectly balanced with a mild, sweet finish. It’s lean and easy to enjoy. The meat fills the shell nicely, and is immersed in a subtle, sweet liquor.
