Product description


Extreme Greens is a really special book, a well-presented, fascinating, highly informative, and extremely digestible guide to the intriguing and under-documented world of seaweed that will hold your attention from page one. Sally McKenna introduces us to the magical tidal harvest of sea vegetables, with all its culinary and cosmetic possibilities. Pour yourself a seaweed bath, and soak in it while you absorb this gem of a book. Joanna Blythman --Joanna Blythman, Author and Journalist

I m thrilled that Sally McKenna has written Extreme Greens: it is a book that will help to give a much broader understanding of the myriad ways in which we can use seaweeds in our kitchen. This is a book that needed to be written, a book about the great wealth of our coastline, and one written from the point of view of a cook. Darina Allen --Darina Allen, Ballymaloe Cookery School

Imagine being offered plentiful free food. Imagine if this free food was packed with health promoting minerals, nutrients and anti oxidants which could help you to live longer and fight disease, help you to lose weight, and give shiny healthy skin and hair. Imagine a natural, sustainable free food which is also proven to confer health benefits on your pets, livestock and chickens. A free food that will make the vegetables in your garden germinate faster and be more resistant and give better yields. Sally McKenna offers you this free and plentiful food through this book. My name is Susan Steele, I was inspired by the oceans at the age of three and I have dedicated my life to the seas ever since, working as a marine biologist, a seafood innovator and currently heading the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority. You have a number of choices on how to use this superb work by Sally McKenna. You can choose to use it as a coffee table book and admire the skilled photography and the recipes but not put it to use. You can choose to try some of the recipes using dried seaweeds. Or you can choose to use the book to open the doors to a wondrous new world and to amazing adventures which have inspired Sally McKenna in writing the book. I believe that there is nowhere as relaxing as by a shore on low tide surrounded by the greens, browns and reds of seaweed. I believe that there is nothing as delicious as many of the recipes using seaweed and I believe that there is nothing as healthy as eating seaweed. Enjoy this book, embrace the new ideas and explore a part of natural Ireland that you may not have appreciated fully. Dr Susan Steele, PhD, MBA, MEd Executive Board Member Sea Fisheries Protection Authority --Dr Susan Steele, Sea Fisheries Protection Authority
