Amazing course on sea vegetables and halophiles full of recipes and tips

Did you know that there are almost 30,000 species of algae? And that only between 20 and 30 varieties are consumed. Therefore, you must know how to cook them, how they appear on the market and how they are preserved.

Also in this course Pepe Solla will talk about halophiles, those plants that are found between the sea and the cliffs.

In the course, you will find the best known algae in the Iberian Peninsula: types, classification, physical and organoleptic characteristics.

It is an online course designed for chefs or cooking lovers who want to discover how these sea vegetables are used.

In this course the objective is to carry out a tasting menu around algae and halophiles and learn about some of the many possibilities that these two ingredients provide, both fresh, frozen, dehydrated or even in salt.

You will also learn how to work the algae, in which preparations are most useful one type or the other.  At the end of this course you will be able to:

  •  Distinguish the different most common algae and halophiles on the market.
  • You will learn to liquefy and extract the main juice so as not to lose properties of this marine delicacy.

Superb scientific-, and informational-content.

Unique course (in Spanish but with English subtitles – ps great way to pick up some Spanish language btw) that deals with seaweeds and algaes. I love this chef's knowledge and care to details and his attitude strikes me as very pleasant and interesting…someone I could imagine sitting with for hours discussing a range of topics. I'm excited to learn more about cooking with these ingredients!
