Seaweed and Saint Patrick

Here’s a recent video that explains all you need to know about seaweed, foraging and cooking the delicious, healthy and most importantly FREE natural resource that grows on our shores…

Perfect for a healthy meal, try iodine rich kelp, some sea spaghetti, sea lettuce, dilsk, and so much more.

A simple pasta dish with a super healthy twist!

Or, try it in the bath for all that ails you! Seaweed is a wonderful natural resource, all given to us by the sea…

Terry’s retirement from The Red Bank in Skerries to producing the book and all things in between. From Seaweed to Salmon, all the inspiration behind the project that has become Saint Patrick’s Plate.

Thank you all for braving the torrential rain and coming along to the book launch on Monday night. Special thanks also to Bertie Ahern who so kindly lead our discussion on stage.

With thanks also to the Lord Mayor, Paul McAuliffe, who so generously allowed us call The Mansion House home last night for a couple of hours. The Oak room is a stunning spot and we couldn’t have asked for a better location to hold our first launch.

It was a great night and I’m very proud to have been surrounded by such good friends and family. I’m really looking forward to this Friday the 8th November when we have our second book launch in the Sailing Club in Skerries. All are welcome. I’d love to see you there! In the meantime, you can purchase a copy of the book here
