We took Vicky Allan, a writer for the Sunday Herald and seaweed novice, out for a day of harvesting and got her hooked! She writes of her experience: “In fact I am on my way to becoming a dulse addict, immediately hooked on this long-forgotten food. Fast-forward a week and it seems almost impossible to get through a meal without a small sprinkling.”
On first tasting seaweed she says “People often say seaweed is an acquired taste. But it seems to me this needs no acquiring, it’s like a taste of the ocean itself, crunchy, salty, slightly slimy.”
And of Mara she writes “the business may appear quirky” but “it is a smart operation, innovative, well-marketed and driven by research.” – We couldn’t agree more!
