The Royal Canadian oyster is carefully cultivated for 6 to 7 years in crystal clear waters. Its farming relies on a unique fusion of techniques; it is first firmly wedged in the clay soil of Hunter River, where this oyster begins its journey. After about 3 years, each oyster is hand harvested and placed in cages suspended on the surface. Thenceforth, the currents and tides shape it. The result: a polished, regular shell, with a dense flesh, offers a pronounced, boldly saline taste, with a touch of wild mushrooms.
