Living off edible plants by the seaside

Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

Did you know you can live from the edible plant on most of our beaches? Perhaps you’ve tried dilisk or carrageen pudding? Or you’ve had kelp or even laver bread?

These and more delicious and healthy plants grow on rocky shores around the coast. The next time you go to the seaside, why not pick a few pieces and create a novel picnic? But how will I know what to pick or what to do with it you ask?

It’s all answered in a handy new book called The Sea Garden. With clear descriptions and photographs to help you identify the tastiest types of seaweed and recipes and cooking tips on how to use them this book has everything you need to add an exciting new dimension to your day out at the shore.
