Journey of the BLUFF OYSTER from ocean floor to plate | New Zealand Food Tour

E-Commerce Solutions SEO Solutions Marketing Solutions
This episode kicks off at the very bottom of Te Wai Pounamu, the South Island in a town called Bluff. Bluff is home to the best oyster in the world- the Bluff oyster! The Bluff oyster or Bluffie as it's often called locally is sold only in New Zealand. There is a strict quota system and once all the oysters are caught for the season (approximately March to August) that's it! We head out with the team from Fowlers Oysters to the Foveaux Strait to catch the oysters before returning to shore to watch them shuck the oysters before we eat! Get ready for never before seen, exclusive access of the Bluff Oyster’s journey from ocean floor to plate.

Aotearoa New Zealand has a rich food culture that revolves around the land and the fresh food it provides.

We’ll share how New Zealander’s gather and cook from the land, take you into the kitchens of New Zealand’s favourite restaurants and uncover the traditional food of Aotearoa. #newzealand #bluffoysters #oysters

We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country's culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

We're all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won't find food that's been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best and most authentic food we find on our travels.
