Coast to Mountain: Wild Wadden Oysters

  • Lessingstrasse 13 Zürich, 8002 Switzerland (map)

On this special evening we are welcoming fresh oysters (and more) directly from the Dutch Waddensea. Brought over by the Fisher family - Barbara and Jan Geertsema-Rodenburg - who, together with their crew, hand-picked and harvested them from wild oyster banks at the coast.

Meet Barbara and Jan and listen to their seafaring stories while sharing a drink or two with them. By the end of the evening you'll not only know how to open oysters (without skewering your hand - because tabasco makes for a far better condiment than blood!), you will also understand how the responsibility for the protection of brooks, rivers and the sea - from mountain to coast - is one we must all share.

You will get the chance to experience the pleasure, beauty and flavor of our coastal waters - we will serve you handmade doordraaisoep', a thick fish soup served with roasted seaweed (Fucus spiralis) and grey shrimp. And for dessert 'duindoorncake' - a sea buckthorn cake. Cant picture how that might taste? All the more reason to join us!

Cost: CHF 95.- / Slow Food Members CHF 85.-, includes oysters, dinner and wine for the evening.

This evening will be held in English.

These oysters will be available for purchase starting 12.11. at Berg und Tal Marktladen im Viadukt. To order call 044 271 21 61 or email info(at) Or come along to the Slow Food Market in Zürich Oerlikon.
