Bia Sasta at Garryvoe Beach East Cork

Bia Sasta is a Facebook page worth checking out if you live in Cork and are interested in food. I met many of the members last saturday at Garryvoe Beach in east Cork and we foraged and feasted on the bounty of the sea. On a glorious summer’s day, we found carrageen, sleabhcan, pepper dulse, dilisk, sweet kelp, sea lettuce and enteromorpha. Elke treated us to a delicious picnic of seaweed salads, cookies and breads - all recipes from The Sea Garden. The Chocolate Carrageen Mousse was the best I’ve tasted!
