The Ultimate Types of Oysters from Kusshi’s Oyster Farm
The Kusshi oyster is considered to be one of the finest types of oysters on the market today. It is an exquisite delicacy that commands a premium price, is in limited supply, and is the consummate choice for oyster bars and fine dining establishments, both domestically and internationally. Kusshi’s will delight the most enthusiastic of oyster connoisseurs.
Due to specialized and proprietary practices, including tumbling, passed down through the generations from father to son, the Kusshi shell is beautifully smooth and easy to open. Remarkably, the cup is as deep as it is long. This perfect shell surrounds copious amounts of nectar and firm, plump, delicious meat.
Like a perfect grape or cherry tomato, the plump meat fills your mouth with pleasure and the deliciously invigorating taste of the ocean. These types of oysters have exquisite flavour that starts salty, transitions to sweet, and finishes with a delightfully mild fruity taste.
Naming the Kusshi Oyster
In naming our Kusshi™ oyster, we wanted to pay homage to the Japanese origins of the Pacific oyster or Crassostrea Gigas which originated in Japan and was brought to North America in the early 1900’s, while expressing the unique nature of our product – the ‘ultimate’ oyster.
“Kusshi no hito” – in Japan in 1893, a Soshi (master, or head teacher) was recorded using this term. He was describing a man of uncommon ability. Today, the term is still used in the Japanese language to describe something considered to be world-class, outstanding, preeminent or ‘the best.’
