A magical trip to Coney Island to identify seaweeds on the shore with Dr Prannie Rhatigan who has just returned with a first from the Gourmand Best in the world Awards in China. After the walk, picnic on chowder cooked on the open fire by Anthony Gray – well-known Sligo foodie and owner of the Eala Bhán and Hooked Restaurants. Seaweed has always been on the menu in Sligo.
