A Mersea Island local, i grew up on a boat a stones throw from the oyster beds that line the shores of West Mersea.
Oysters are an intrinsic part of the history of my home town and our salty treats are renowned the world over.
I have worked much of my adult life for Richard Haward, a 7th generation Oysterman, spending my days out on the open water, dredging and hand picking oysters. Some times a harsh environment, but always idillic and rewarding, it was here i found a fascination for these curious bivalves.
I now spend my days opening these delicious morsels for the general public of Borough Market, London, where I open thousands of oysters every week. Come down if you would like to see me in action and eat some delicious oysters.
