Shelton , WA , United States

Xinh Dwelley was born in An Hoa, Vietnam; during the war she found work cooking for the U.S. Army, and eventually moved to Washington State. Since then she's become one of the Northwest's most celebrated oyster experts-she's a five-time winner of the West Coast Oyster Shucking Championship. She's also an excellent cook, and her Vietnamese seafood restaurant in the oyster-mad town of Shelton, on the Puget Sound, is among the best on the Olympic Peninsula. Xinh gets her oysters from Taylor Shellfish Farms, also in Shelton, which harvests the renowned Totten Inlet Virginica (an Eastern oyster transplanted to Puget Sound) as well as some top-notch Pacifics, Kumamotos, and Olympias.
