Following on from the wild success of our previous foraging workshops, we're running an all-new one focused on edible seaweeds! Join seaweed forager, Rebecca Gouldhurst, at Breaker Bay for a 90-minute forage in and around the waters at low tide. *Please wear gum boots or water shoes and bring a bag if you'd like to collect seaweeds. You'll learn practical skills and tips that you can use over and over again--and save money instead of buying expensive dried seaweeds from a shop.
Seaweeds we'll focus on:
After foraging, we'll return to the kitchen and cafe at Vogelmorn and, under the expert guidance of Head Chef of Hillside, Nikita Kuschke, enjoy a 4-course vegetarian tasting with each course featuring seaweed.
By the end of the workshop you will:
1) be able to identify a variety of edible seaweeds;
2) be able to identify safe conditions for seaweed foraging;
3) understand the basic principles of foraging (including areas to avoid because of pollutants) and harvesting sustainable amounts
4) gain confidence in the kitchen cooking with foraged seaweeds and learn ideas and recipes for maximizing the flavour and nutritional benefits of seaweeds
Tasting menu will be revealed on the day! Please advise of any dietary requirements. The chef will do her best but might not be able to cater to all dietary requirements.
