At last! A chance to get to grips with using seaweed in your cooking.
You’ll be learning from Carmel Somers of the renowned Good Things Café, Sally McKenna (author of Extreme Greens, the best book on seaweed to hit our shelves) and April Dannan owner of Rebel Foods and an expert in fermentation and nutrition.
At last, a chance to really get to grips with using seaweed in your cooking! After a quick cup of coffee at The Good Things Café, you will head to the shore where Sally will share their knowledge with you, while a seafood breakfast roll is prepared for you on the BBQ.
This is the week of the full moon, so the tides will be low and the seaweed will be perfect for picking. Then it is back to The Good Things Café for a day of dishes using seaweed, from breakfast right through to dinner, including some very clever snacks.
Over the last couple of years, Sally has been researching, cooking and making creams, potions and lotions with seaweed, as well as traveling around Ireland giving classes, sharing her outstanding knowledge. Amongst many other recipes you will cover a seaweed smoothie, dulse scones, a chowder, sea vegetable salad with pickled sour cherries and our ever popular chocolate and Nori ice cream.
Of course, in this class we will also be covering the health benefits of seaweed in our diet. Sally will also be sharing her recipes for some of her homemade seaweed cosmetics. In the afternoon, you will be joined by April who will show us how to ferment and will explain the health benefits of fermented foods.
Do join us for a day of discovery and a chance to get a signed copy of Sally’s book!
The day will include:
Demonstrations and a visit to the shore.
Small classes – no more than sixteen people.
