The words of Olivier Roellinger

One of my childhood friends, Jean-François, is the best kelp producer in Brittany. He has managed to produce this Japanese species on ropes out in the sea. Japanese experts have deemed it to be of significant quality. Harvested in spring and in autumn, the seaweed is carefully dried in the wind and then ground. It remains pure.
The salty, ocean-like flavour of wakame evokes oysters. I often use it as a replacement for table salt, which is consumed far too often.
