Exploring the Future of Protein: Spirulina & Seaweed (no rsvp required)

Algae Could Help Feed The World…Taste The Change!

Spirulina, a blue-green microalgae, is one of the highest quality, most easily digestible sources of complete protein known to man; ounce for ounce, it provides ~65% vs. ~25% for beef. Its efficiency is unmatched; a farmer can produce 1kg of spirulina in a week vs. six months for 1kg of beef. And NASA has given it a thumb’s up! Seaweed, a macroalgae, is also a nutrient powerhouse with a radically shortened production timeframe. 

But, the question remains: HOW DOES IT TASTE?  Join us at Pepe’s Bistro to watch a short documentary (Dutch Weed Burger (trailer above)) featuring various NYC chefs and their takes on seaweed burgers and more, then taste test a few special items for yourself. This is a FREE event; seating is limited.

    Thank you very much for this projection, Just two small suggestion eventually put online
    The first sugestion, the film's title was "The Dutch Weed Burger" but I can not find the version of 28 min you have show, could you put the link?
    The second sugestion, I think for the most simples recipes everyone understood (guacamole, popcorn) but for the recipes a bit more complicated (and delicious as mini hamburger, the green chips, mix in the nuts coconut) I'd like you post quickly ingedients you used ...
    Again thank you alot
