We were really lucky to have the sun and glorious blue skies without even a breath of wind for our seaweed foraging course “Seaweed and Eat It!” on the spectacular Dorset coast on Sunday. The first part of the day was spent on the shore taking advantage of the really low tide to find a good range of edible species. As well as learning about each and how to use it in the kitchen we talked about other issues such as sustainable harvesting.
At our indoor venue we split into groups with each preparing part of lunch:
The Sea Spaghetti was declared “a revelation”.
Everyone had a great time, with lots of very positive feedback – words like lovely, delicious, fascinating, recommend, very enjoyable, excellent, great, informative and confident.
Thanks to those that joined us for making it a memorable day.
Among the feedback on the seaweed walk received from attendees:
Thanks James for the seaweed foraging experience today, enjoyed every minute, great place on a sunny day with a great group of people, some serious seaweed drying going down tomorrow, in fact bit of a seaweed fest tomorrow, going for the sea lettuce, pepper dulse with scrambled eggs and smoked salmon for a decadent brekkie, crispy seaweed for lunch some seaweed crisps to snack on in between and you must give me that miso soup recipe we tried today, thanks again!
Thank you for a very informative and fun morning last Sunday. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the food you gave us was delicious and inspiring.
