Platters IMG_1635

The real deal and a touch of history from the Sydney restaurant scene: these aluminium oyster platters were originally from the Bayswater Brasserie, a leader in shuck-to-order culture in Sydney in the 1980s. They were a prized gift to me from Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay.

This oyster cup can make life a bit easier and save a few nicks and scratches. Buy one or perhaps knock up something similar yourself.
