There is more to seaweed than as a wrapper for sushi - it is going mainstream, gathering many high profile fans. Even Jamie Oliver has credited adding seaweed to his diet as one reason for his weight loss. This super food is a low-calorie source of protein and fibre; is richer in trace minerals and vitamins than kale; and contains all kinds of goodness, including vitamin C, iodine and antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is delicious as a snack, added to soups, in omelettes, tossed through pasta, made into pesto and is a fabulous accompaniment to fish. The seaweeds used in this book are found all over the Northern hemisphere and have been harvested for centuries in North America, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Grennland, Siberia, Norway and France. The main species (nori, dulse, kombu, wakame and hijiki) are all illustrated and explained, with detailed descriptions of how to identify them, where they grow and the other information you need to gather the rich harvest of the sea. But if sea-scavenging is not your style there are plenty of dried seaweeds now available to buy from natural food stores and supermarkets where it is also appearing in many more forms such as snacks, condiments, salt substitute and crackers. Seaweeds are tasty and very versatile and can be used in all sorts of dishes. This sumptuously illustrated book will inspire you to use them in starters, main courses, plus tasty desserts, smoothies, energy boosters, and even a seaweed-infused gin and tonic. It’s easier than you think and everything you can find on the subject is here in this inspiring book. So if you have never tasted sea vegetables, it is high time to try.

After nearly forty years, Pedro Subijana, the three star Michelin chef and his world-famous restaurant, Akelaŕe, is at the forefront of the New Basque Cuisine, championed in the 70s by Juan Mari Arzak. In the words of Subijana, ‘New Basque Cuisine aims to focus on seasonal products but adding a large dose of imagination and pushing back the frontiers’. Above all, he says, ‘Throughout the meal, we take care of every last detail to ensure that the occasion is a memorable one’. His restaurant Akelare (a Basque word that has entered the Spanish language, meaning a coven of witches) is in a spectacular location on the slopes of the Monte Igueldo, one of the symbols of the beautiful city of San Sebastián, and looks over the Bay of Biscay; it has got to be one of the most special places for a meal anywhere in the world. Here in this visually stunning production you will find some of the culinary creations of Pedro Subijana from the last ten years and you will find excellence, innovation and the avant garde, three terms that could define Akelaŕe's style, as well as an insight into the work of the kitchen and its extensive team.
