Pick your own seaweed and learn how to cook it in French Atlantic Ocean town of La Baule

There’s no one more passionate about the presqu’île de Guérande than Jean-Marie Pedron.  This is precisely why he established the Ferme Marine at Le Croisic on the site of the old family saltworks, which has been nourished by the sea for over 500 years. At the Ferme Marine, Jean-Marie and his wife Valérie raise and harvest edible algae, which they supply to renowned chefs across France.

During this experience, you’ll join Jean-Marie for a tour of the marine farm, and you will have the chance to harvest seaweed yourself.

Then you’ll join Valérie for a cooking workshop that focuses on local, natural and 100% wild algae products. You’ll make her favourite recipe, seaweed caviar, which mixes different raw algae to make a spread that bursts with sea flavors.
