Hood Canal and Southern Puget Sound

Wildcat Cove

A great name, and a good oyster. Wildcat Cove is a tiny alcove of water just where Little Skookum Inlet feeds into Totten Inlet. If I was the first oyster farmer on earth and had my pick of spots, I’d probably start right here—rich plankton, great water exchange, no boat traffic. The oyster is fat and meaty, strong flavored, tough shelled, as you’d expect from a bag-to-beach South Sound oyster. The rich environment imparts a very sweet collard greens flavor with a melon-rind finish. The shells tend to be fluted and horned.
