Foraging Seaweed: Harvesting a French Coastal Superfood

Cristelle Maine walks along the rocky beaches of Brittany, France during the low tides to harvest a French coastal superfood: seaweed. In this Foodie video, she forages for fresh algae blades, explaining (in French with English subtitles) the variety available — Royal Kombu, Dulse, Fucus, Sea Spaghetti, Sea Lettuce, and more — before returning home to bake a superfood quiche or tarte aux algues.
