Beautiful tastings and left with newfound knowledge.
Looks like a mini eco tour learning not just about the various types of seaweed in the day but also about the edible plants surrounding the bay that could be used to eat. The tour also included the lifecycle and how abalone grow and I didn't know that it took 4 to 5 years just to go an abalone 3.5 inches in length.

The food execution and presentation of the seaweed and abalone was beautiful and delicious.

The host/guide had a wealth of information and knowledge. You could tell she and her mom cared about the environment and respected the food sourcing.

I enjoyed this very much!
