The book mermaids-in-training have been waiting for. From history and folklore to recipes and tips for ocean preservation, as well as profiles and original illustrations of mer-maidens from around the world, The Mermaids Handbook features everything you need to know to follow the mermaid way of life.
Over 40 healthy and accessible recipes, developed by author Taylor Widrig of Mermaid Fare, a Nova Scotia–based company specializing in wild and cultivated sea vegetables, include scrumptious starters like Mermaid Kaiso Seaweed Salad, new classics like Dulse, Lettuce, and Tomato Sandwich and Creamy Wakame Casserole, as well as healthy snacks like Smoothie Bowls and Energy Bites, and even homemade beauty products, such as the Coconut Sea Hair Mask—for that salty sea-hair.
Includes an introduction by Dr. Alan Critchley with everything you’ve ever wanted to know about seaweeds and original 2-colour illustrations by artist Briana Corr Scott (The Book of Selkie).
