Olivier Rœllinger's words

Wakame's briny, marine-like taste is reminiscent of the salty tang of a fresh oyster. I often use it as a substitute for salt, which we consume too much of, in general. Jean-Francois Arbona is a childhood friend who is the seaweed master of Brittany. He has found a way to grow this Japanese seaweed on lines off the coast of Saint-Suliac, a small fishing town near Cancale. Japanese culinary experts have deemed it to be of very high quality. Jean-François’ wakame is harvested in the spring and fall. The seaweed is then gently dried and ground to flakes from a pure state.


Wakame is a brown seaweed that is a member of the kelp family. It hails from Japan and was introduced to Europe in the 1970's. The wakame we use is grown in Brittany.
