Oyster Tasting at North Haven Oyster Co.

Oyster Sauce Recipes from Chef Anna Miller

A special part of the annual Down East Food Cruise is the unique opportunity for guests (and us) to chat with aquaculture expert Adam Campbell of North Haven Oyster Co. and to sample some (many) of these delicious Maine oysters. Last year, as an added bonus, schooner chef, Anna Miller, whipped up these dipping sauces, for a whole new level of flavor.

We spent the evening talking aquaculture and eating the freshest, most delicious oysters you can find while the sun set over the Camden Hills.
