We regret that due to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and official advice, we have stopped all our events with immediate effect until we are allowed to re-commence. Read more on our dedicated Coronavirus page. When we recommence we MAY add additional runs of this event to accommodate those that have had their bookings disrupted.
Join us on one of our “Seaweed and Eat It!” seaweed foraging courses near Weymouth. We will forage for a range of seaweeds and then cook and eat a three-course meal with them in every course. You will learn about the different types to harvest and how to use them in the kitchen as well as covering the law and sustainable practices. After the course you will be sent extensive handouts including the recipes for the meal.
While seaweeds have been eaten in some parts of Britain for a very long time, for most people, however, it is a part of Oriental cuisine such as the wrapping for sushi. Seaweed has become very popular over the last year or two with some types of British seaweed and seaweed products being sold in leading supermarkets. Being rich in iodine and other minerals they are also viewed as being a very healthy thing to eat. They are extremely versatile and can be used in every course of a meal including desserts and cakes. Of the 600 or so species in British waters about a dozen or so are eaten. The challenge is appropriate treatment in the kitchen for each species.
The lunch menu is flexible and can be suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
