Nýp Seaweed Seminar  

The summer 2014 we had our first Seaweed Seminars, exploring vegetables of the sea–edible algae–along the coastline of Breiðafjörður with marine biologist Karl Gunnarsson, and afterwards enjoy the culinary possibilities of Icelandic seaweed with Kuniko Ibayashi Changchien. Kuniko is from Hokkaido, the seaweed capital of Japan, and she will be flying in from Tokyo to join us.



Kunkiko Ibayashi Changchien prepares seaweed at home in Tokyo.
