Australian cookbook features innovative chefs’ algae dishes

Ulladullatimes reports that The Coastal Chef, a coffee table book showcasing Sydney, Australia’s innovative chefs and South Coast scenery, was launched at the recent Congress of the International Society for Applied Phycology, Sydney..

Editor and project manager Claudine Tinellis said 20 South Coast chefs, worked alongside Mollymook-based marine scientist Dr. Pia Winberg to publish an “inspirational table-top book of new food creations using seaweed and algae.”

“This is an exciting and innovative project aimed at inspiring Australians to eat seaweed and algae and to promote the exceptional culinary talent of new and established chefs with links to the Shoalhaven,” she said.

A strong advocate for seaweed’s health benefits, Dr. Winberg sourced a selection of seaweed and algae from around the world and gave each participating chef a mystery box to work with. Each chef was asked to come up with innovative ways to use the seaweed and algae by creating an entree, main course, dessert or even a beverage and to document the process for the book.

The book is now available at the Harbour Bookshop in Ulladulla
