Each year in May the village of Grebbestad hosts the Nordic Oyster Opening Championship. Ninety per cent of Sweden’s oysters are harvested here, making it the ideal spot for an oyster safari. Visit on Oyster Day in September or come in the spring when the molluscs are rich in glycogen, giving them a strong mineral flavour and firm flesh. Brothers Per and Lars Karlsson give lessons in oyster shucking at their restored 19th century boathouse, Everts Sjöbod, where you can rake up a dozen straight from the dock.
