The Seaweed Forager
By Rebecca Gouldhurst

Three years, eight drafts and 222 pages later,  I am thrilled to announce the release of The Seaweed Forager by Rebecca Gouldhurst.

It was a pleasure to act as Rebecca's lead copy editor and proofreader on the project, learning along the way a myriad facts about the best ways to gather, prepare and cook nature's superfood.
