Late summer we head down to our black beach in Ólafsfjörður to get Seaweed, Dulse and Carragheen. For centuries, these seaweeds have been an important food that was used in a variety of ways, for example, in porridges and as filler in bread. People have again begun to cook with dulse and other seaweeds. The general public has taken note of its health benefits, uniqueness and possibilities in cooking.
At the start of our journey, we will meet up at Kaffi Klara Restaurant and have a light lunch made by a local chef. After that, we will walk down to the beach to find all kinds of seaweed. Our local guide will inform you about the vegetation while we walk along our
long beach with breathtaking views and sea-breeze. When we have filled up our bags with all kinds of seaweed we head back to the restaurant to start making local recipes. These are all homemade recipes made by the locals for generations and are now available to you. All participants take home with them the produce they have made.
