Easy to grow, sustainable, and a solution to climate change, ocean vegetables are plentiful (there are more than ten thousand edible varieties), nutritious, and delicious (as recipes from James Beard Award-winning chef Brooks Headley included here will show). A miracle food if ever there was one, seaweed is a perfect ingredient—exotic yet local—particularly in the face of rapid environmental upheaval, rising populations, and finite food resources. In Eat Like a Fish, Bren Smith—former commercial fisherman turned restorative ocean farmer—advocates getting seaweed onto American plates, reimagining our ideas about ocean eating, and taking readers on a journey from his childhood at sea to fishing trawlers to the frontier of the food movement. Written with the humor and swagger of a fisherman telling a late-night tale, this is a monumental work of memoir-turned-food policy that will change the way we think about what we eat.
We are thrilled to welcome Bren Smith to Book Larder! Bren will be in conversation with local author Sara Dickerman and talk about both the politics and the recipes of seaweed (you’ll get to try a bite!), answer your questions, and sign copies of Eat Like a Fish. Please note the author will sign copies of the book purhcased at Book Larder.
