Event description

Description

Explore the culinary possibilities of the native seaweeds of Maine with an experienced harvester. Taste a variety of sea vegetables and learn how to prepare several dishes including kelp noodles, toasted nori chips, and a New England seaweed salad. We will discuss the distinguishing features of different species of seaweed, how they are harvested, and the importance of sea vegetables as a nutritious, sustainable, and abundant source of food.

Micah Woodcock is the owner/operator of Atlantic Holdfast Seaweed Company, a small company working to sustainably hand-harvest sea vegetables in Penobscot Bay since 2010. Their harvesting and drying operation is based on a remote island 7 miles off of Stonington, where the strong currents, active surf, and full exposure to the force of the open ocean have allowed these seaweeds to thrive for millennia.

Limited space, please register on-line or call Edible Island at 207-367-5888 to reserve your spot. $50 includes a light dinner.
