Get Your Shuck On With David Chang


On this chilly Monday, why not watch David Chang teach Opening Ceremony’s Rory Satran how to shuck an oyster and top it with melon-shiso purée? The act of shucking itself is quick work, and we commend Chang in particular for conducting himself with absolutely no trace of innuendo, even when he says, “We’re doing an east-west motion inside” while wiggling his knife around. Watch him explain his dislike of cocktail sauce (it kills the flavor of the oyster) and tell the story of his all-time favorite bivalve experience (shocker: It involves beer) in the video.
