A day course exploring the world of seaweed...
This course will take place at low tide on a beach on the Isle of Thanet. We will find and identify seaweeds from the three major groups, and taste them in the raw.
We will then cook and eat simple food, which will illustrate how seaweeds enhance the savoury flavours of meals with umami compounds.
Umami - Japanese for deliciousness - is the 5th taste and centres around glutamate and ribonucleotides, both found in seaweeds, as well as fellow beech-dwellers, shellfish.
Details: 10am - 3pm | £90 | Meeting place revealed soon
