Oyster masterclass competition

picture of Oyster masterclassTo mark the beginning of the native oyster season in September, Harden’s has teamed up with Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill to offer you the chance to win an oyster masterclass for two.

Throughout the day you will get to shuck and eat your way through British and Irish oysters, followed by a refreshing glass of fizz and a three course lunch with paired wines. You will even get a goody bag of recipes and an oyster-shucking knife to take home with you.

Bentley’s, which has been overseen by Richard Corrigan since 2006, is something of a Mayfair institution when it comes to bivalves – almost 100 years old (open since 1916), the restaurant sees up to 1,000 oysters shucked every day. The bar and grill will also be hosting an oyster festival on 10 September which includes a complimentary half dozen oysters, shot of Bloody Mary with any lunch or dinner booking and there will be live music throughout the day.

To be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize, perfect for oyster-lovers and novices alike, just answer this simple question:


From which Shakespeare play does the saying ‘the world’s your oyster’ derive?

a) Hamlet

b) Measure for Measure

c) The Merry Wives of Windsor
