The first week we will start with seaweed identification and the various nutrient and flavor profiles of many of the species that abound on the Maine Coast. We will also get a look behind the scenes of the Maine Coast Sea Vegetables processing facility and prepare a quick soup to share. We will reconvene in week two for a more elaborate Ramen Feast with all the fixings. Bring your take-out containers and a hearty appetite!

 

Hope to see you there!
