Peter Stein started Peeko Oysters—an oyster farm on Long Island’s North Fork—in 2016, after leaving a corporate job. Three years later, his oysters are served at top New York City restaurants like Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, and Le Bernardin. Host Lisa Elaine Held sits down with Stein to talk about what oyster farming looks like (in terms of the landscape, methods, and labor), how to grow the most delicious, chef-coveted oysters, and why oysters are an environmentally friendly food.
