Each restaurant showcase team must prepare a minimum of two oyster styles (Rockefeller, Cajun or create your own raw oyster dish).
The Oyster Cook-Off will supply all oysters, napkins, plates and eating utensils for the public. We will also supply two 6ft tables, a 10x10ft tent, signage with your restaurant name on it and a trash receptacle. The Cook-Off encourages each restaurant to bring a shucker but we also have a team of shuckers who will be shucking oysters.
All restaurants are responsible for their own grills, charcoal, cooking utensils, ingredients and presentation dishes for the public.
In addition to your oyster dishes, we invite you to present a signature dish of your choosing.
Your restaurant will be featured in all press releases, on the Cook-Off website and in our souvenir booklet.
