The Boathouse News
Snapper Pie stars again
Acclaimed food critic Terry Durack includes The Boathouse’s legendary Snapper Pie in his “10 Sydney Delights” article in the May issue of SMH Sydney Magazine and The Age Melbourne Magazine. It seems our customers’ love affair with our Snapper Pie shows no signs of waning yet!
Oysters, one of nature’s superfoods
Australia has the most superb oysters in the world, so it’s not surprising they are one of our favourite seafoods. The Boathouse has the best array of oysters in Sydney and serves around 250 dozen freshly shucked oysters a week – that’s a lot of oysters! So it’s nice to know they are good for you too!
You don’t need an excuse to enjoy a dozen oysters as they are one of the most nutritious foods, low in fact, high in protein and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins D and B12, and many essential minerals. That must be why they taste so good!
Oysters are not only a sustainable seafood, but also provide many important benefits to the environment where they grow, improving water quality and providing important habitat for a variety of organisms. Even more reason to enjoy them regularly!
The Good Food section of the Sydney Morning Herald has included The Boathouse’s Oyster Masterclasses on its “Food Lover’s Bucket List” of “Australia’s best gourmet experiences”. Check out the list here.
The two-hour oyster shucking and tasting classes are presented by Steve Feletti of Moonlight Flat Oysters and our Executive Chef Colin Barker as part of Sydney’s Crave International Food Festival in October.
However, we are happy to organise private Oyster classes for social or corporate groups at any time. Please contact us (02) 9518 9011 or email email@example.com for details.
Don’t forget you can drop into The Boathouse Bar with its spectacular view across the Bay for a plate of oysters or other light meal, and a luscious new cocktail at any time during our normal opening hours. The Bar is open from 6 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, and from noon to 10 pm on Thursday through Sunday.
