Fiona Bird lives ‘the seaweed dream’. She forages for seaweed in the clear Outer Hebridean waters on an almost daily basis and cooks with it most days. This book offers imaginative solutions to incorporating seaweed into our daily fare. Fiona Birds tells us how seaweed can be foraged, cleansed, and prepared for use in the kitchen. She also gives us a history of seaweed gathering, including the ‘seaweed sisterhood’.
“I enjoy foraging seaweed, but the recipes in this book will work equally well with shop purchased ingredients.”
