As well as a cookery book, you will be enriched with a short history of seaweed and it's mythology. From 3rd. century Chinese Emperor looking for the "elixir of eternal youth" to helping Britain winning the 2nd. World War.

Another chapter is concerned with the Nutritional & Health properties of Sea Vegetables, which contains 10 times more minerals than their counterparts
on land. How to counteract acidity in our system due to high consumption
of fried food, combined with a lifestyle full of tension and irritability on a
continuous level. And some information on Vitamins, Alkali, Iodine and how to keep a clean bloodstream.

Buying or harvesting & preparing Sea Vegetables is followed by 25 or 30
recipes which are all beautifully illustrated photographically. Simple
to understand, most would take less than 20 minutes, to provide you a
dinner party that will astonish and delight your guests.

The Author has created and cooked some of these recipes for decades.
From a Franco-Mauritian-Creole culinary background with an influence
of Mediterranean flavours, he has combined a traditional Japanese ingredient, which is Sea Vegetable, to make a unique blend of dishes.
The result being a crisscrossing of three cultural cuisine which will not fail to ambush and delight the taste buds of everyone.

Annie, if this was boring then why did you read on to the third chapter?

I still love this, it's very interesting and I think I definitely will try seaweed one day! Thank you for all of the information you've given! I highly appreciate it!

I knew that it was in beer (I've read a book called Kelp!) but I definitely didn't know it was in ice cream!
