The Magic World Of Amanda:an Algae Forrest Torino-lingotto Fiere

Explore the world of algae

Zip up your wetsuit, put on your mask, fins, and snorkel and join the marine biologist and harvester Amanda Swinimer! She will lead the way on a discovery of the mystical and mysterious kelp kingdom of the Northwest Pacific Ocean. In this region, seaweed and medicinal ocean herbs are pruned rather than harvested, respecting the environment and leaving the rest of the plant to continue growing. During this Taste Workshop, take a sensory dive to an underwater forest in the beautiful ‘Emerald Sea’, discovering the herbs and algae that populate it.

Served: Crostini with algae pesto; Salad of prunes and tofu with algae. Paired with Chardonnay Russian River De Loach 2015 and il Pinot Noir Russian River De Loach 2015 from Cuzziol Grandi Vini, Santa Lucia di Piave (Tv).
