Togue's Tips:

Be a scallop sommelier!

Did you know scallops have different tastes and textures, just like oysters do? You've heard of "terroir" in wine.  In seafood these place-based differences are referred to as "merroir." Think about it: filter feeders take everything they will ever be from the waters around them, so it would make sense that they'd develop place-based flavors. Maine's cold, clear waters and strong tides produce the world's best scallop varietals, so why not explore them? 

This collection will contain three 8 oz packages of scallops, each from a different area. The texture, depth of flavor and brine level will vary by location: we hope you and your friends will enjoy picking a favorite. It also contains 50 ml of extra virgin olive oil from Fiore Olive Oils and a jar of Maine Flake Finishing Salt from Slacktide Sea Salt.  These businesses are also woman-owned by the way :)

More info on why these scallops are so delicious:

Downeast Dayboat scallops are amazing for two reasons: one is that they come from Maine's cold, clear inshore waters.  The second reason is how they're handled. They never touch fresh water and they're shipped to you within 24 hours. 

These scallops are boat-run, which means the size will vary according to fishing location.  They generally run 15 to 20 to a pound though.

Each varietals container will be labeled with the harvest location in addition to the name of the fisherman, the name of his boat and the harvest date.  

This variety pack makes a great gift - it's a wonderful way to introduce your friends and family to what they've been missing all these years.  THIS is what scallops should taste like.
