SEAWEED FORAGING COURSES
Seaweeds are fascinating, diverse and nutritionally rich. I teach up to 20 different seaweeds (though am learning more all the time), and you may want to take a look at my award-winning seaweed book which includes lots of photos and step-by-step recipes too. Seaweed courses usually involve less walking, though more challenging terrain (i.e rocks and wet surfaces!),
I teach across a range of beaches, each personally selected by me for its diversity of seaweeds as well as being a wonderful venue in its own right.
Course outline and what to expect:
- 3 hour course with tasters
- Walking, standing in or around (wet feet is not obligatory) rock pools and the sea at low tide
- 8-10 seaweeds covered
- Guidance on seaweed identification, safety, seasons and how to harvest and pick
- Tried and tested suggestions on cooking seaweeds and recipes
- How to dry and store seaweeds
- Nutritional and medicinal information (where known, please note I am not a Medical Herbalist)
- Guidelines on the legal side of harvesting seaweeds, including a Seaweed Harvesting Handout.
- Opportunity to buy a signed copy of my Seaweed book/s.
- Wild seaweeds tasters – I will pre-make tasters that incorporate seaweeds, which we will enjoy during the course, e.g. one of the following;
– seaweed hummus and seaweed bread
– hot spicy seaweed broth
– seaweed crackers and wild garlic and seaweed dip
– sweet seaweed cookies or meringues
