Gullah Food Heritage: Tips For Hosting An Oyster Roast with a Caterer from Carolima’s

Gullah Food Heritage: Tips For Hosting An Oyster Roast with a Caterer from Carolima’s

Want to host a party with a unique foodie experience? Why not try an Oyster Roast? A coastal staple is a great way to add fun to any celebration. If you have never hosted an oyster roast, we highly suggest you work with a caterer to organize it. Lucky for you, we have tips from Lowcountry and coastal food experts, Carolima’s who also host an annual oyster roast in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

Tips For Hosting An Oyster Roast with a Caterer from Carolima’s

Check out these tips from Sameka Merisier Jenkins of Carolima’s, a curated Lowcountry and Gullah heritage catering company based in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

Oyster Selections: First decide what kind of oysters you’d like to serve. Local Clusters are the most popular. However, there are lots of options including singles and oysters from other regions. 

Planning Timeline: We suggest planning an oyster roast at least one month in advance. That gives the caterer time to place the order with the local supplier to ensure you receive the oysters needed for your guests.

Weather: Oyster roasts are most fun outside, however you can host inside depending on the weather conditions. Have a tent , tables and chairs. 

Cutlery and Flatware: Oyster knives are a must! Gone are the days of using butter knives out of the house. It’s dangerous and it ruins your China! Lol!

Catering Expertise: Be sure to have your caterer bring back up oysters in case your guests eat more than you anticipated.  Typically you would pay them after the event.  A bushel of local oysters will feed 4-6 guests.
