Sally McKenna Seaweed Extreme Greens Book

Extreme Greens: Understanding Seaweed


Described by the BBC Radio 4 Food Programme as “The new bible on seaweed” and with more than 80 exciting recipes, from dilisk togarashi to rack of lamb with seagrass crust, Extreme Greens explores the multitude of ways in which Irish seaweeds can form a vital, health-filled part of our diet, bringing the most health-giving plants in the natural world straight to our tables. There are chapters on seaweed identification, understanding tides, drying and storing, as well as features on seaweed beauty products and coastal foraging.

Darina Allen described Extreme Greens as “a book that needed to be written”, and Joanna Blythman, the U.K.'s leading investigative food writer called it “a really special book”. “An amazing book which gives readers an in-depth look at Irish seaweed” Food & Wine Magazine
