The ShuckIT Oyster App is designed using oyster info from Chef’s Resources website. It is geared towards Professional Chefs, restaurant servers, oyster aficionados, foodies and culinarians in general. The app provides a culinary profile for over 130 varieties of North American oysters (complete list below), many of which include a good image showing how the oyster looks shucked on the half shell. Each oyster profile includes: flavor profile, seasonality, description, cultivation method, and location grown. Searching for your favorite oyster, or a new discovery, is made simple with a searchable alphabetized list.
