Taste of Dubai Will Host Dibba Bay Oyster Festival

We’re all familiar with the famous platitude ‘the world is your oyster’. But for some, oysters are their whole world. Calling all those who can’t get enough of these edible pearls of the sea; Taste of Dubai is set to host the Dibba Bay Oyster Festival once again, from February 16th to the 25th.

In partnership with Dibba Bay Oysters, a brand that launched in 2016 at the hands of passionate expat aquafarmer Ramie Muray, Taste of Dubai will celebrate all that is great about this locally produced phenomenon, which are now found in some of the Emirates’ top-level restaurants. Farm-to-table venues in JBR, Fujairah and Umm Suqeim will be offering oysters for as little as AED 8, with several well-known eateries, such as BOCA, Lowe, Geales and Jun’s offering deals to make any oyster lover go crazy. 

For the first time, the festival will also host the ‘Dibba Bay Oyster Shuck Off’, a competition to see which chef has best honed their skills in cracking open those fiendish, uninviting shells to get to the goodies inside. The competition is being hosted by Patrick McMurray, World Shucking Champion and Guinness World Record Holder, who will also be there to meet amateurs wanting to try their hand at a little shucking action, either in competition or in one of the masterclasses taking place at the festival.
