A Wild and Local Seaweed Tasting - Event Ticket

$17.00

The Pacific Northwest is home to an estimated 650 species of seaweed. Many different kinds of seaweeds are edible. Marine biologist, seaweed harvester and seaweed educator Amanda Swinimer will be at Whistle Buoy Brewing with a variety of wild, edible seaweeds that she has locally harvested. As participants taste each different seaweed, Amanda shares identification information, nutritional and health properties, harvesting and drying techniques and culinary tips for each type. Participants will also learn some seaweed basics, including how seaweeds play a critical role in the health of our planet. The event will begin with a screening of Whistle Buoy's short film, Seed to Glass, featuring Amanda.

Your order confirmation e-mail will be used as the event ticket.
