The Sea Forager’s Guide to the Northern California Coast
Kirk Lombard; Illustrations by Leighton Kelly
Combining an amazing in-depth knowledge with a quirky wit, Kirk Lombard shares a weath of information about seaweed harvesting, clam digging, fishing, and more. He goes on to provide recipes to make the most of the sea's bounty. Leighton Kelly's interesting, informative, and unique illustrations provide a perfect complement to the text.
Lombard, a former staff member at the state Department of Fish and Game and founder of the foraging tour company/seafood delivery service Sea Forager Seafood, insists that his readers follow all regulations and encourages sustainable practices above and beyond what the State of California requires. Andrew Zimmern calls The Sea Forager’s Guide “The definitive guide to foraging the Northern Californian coast.”
“Lombard is a divinely inspired whack job—think Frank Zappa meets Aldo Leopold. If you have ever considered the idea of gathering something good to eat from the beach… you need this book.”
