About

Coastal Foraging Workshop

Lambertbay, West Coast

13th of April 10am-2pm

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR:

Anyone who has an interest in wild, foraged and local food. Chefs wanting to discover new ingredients or foodies wanting to play with the diverse wild flavours in our shellfish and edible seaweeds and discover their unique umami flavours. People interested in healthy living, coastal living, self-sufficiency, in the Slow Food movement or those that just want to have a delicious experience in the beautiful outdoors at a unique location.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

This workshop will introduce you to some of our local edible seaweed, explore the magical world of rock pools, meet like-minded people, learn how to sustainably harvest and prepare your macro-algae and shellfish, make various recipes together that will end in a lunch feast.

We will start off the day meeting at the beach, and after an intro on the rocks we will make our way down around the tidal pools where we will forage for edible seaweeds and shellfish. This beautiful coastline is abundant with food, but as we always forage sustainably, we will be focusing only on the species that are prolific in the area, stressing how to treat the wildlife with respect. After our morning on the rocks, we will head to the beach house with our foraged food to prepare and create a coastal inspired lunch together.

COST & WHAT IS INCLUDED:

R800 per person.

This half day experience includes a delicious three course lunch based on ingredients foraged and prepared by the group. Follow up notes include intro, identification, recipes and tide charts.

The menu will include sushi making, a creamy mussel pot, farm fresh breads and wild flavoured butter, seaweed salads and a delicious dessert.

WHAT TO BRING:

Beach gear, slip-slops or booties, your mollusk permit (essential – available at your nearest post office), cameras, water bottle, a sense of humour and an appetite! Also please bring your drink of choice to enjoy with the meal (beer, juice, spring water, wine etc whatever you prefer)

BONUS:

Collect seaweed to take home and preserve in methods learned on the day.
