Meet the Algae Cooking Club

 Seagriculture EU 2024

A​lgae Cooking Club is a just-launched company selling bottles of algae cooking oil, which it touts as healthy, tasty, and sustainable. It’s got a subtle, buttery flavor, and it’s clear in color and clean in taste.

Kasra Saidi, the founder of Algae Cooking Club recommends the algae oil for frying, dressing salads, adding to smoothies, and emulsifying dips. He says that “Olive oil can be nice if you want a grassy finish, but it can often detract from the nuances of the food you’re preparing.”

Daniel Humm, head chef at New York’s iconic three Michelin star restaurant, 11 Madison Park, has signed on as Algae Cooking Club’s culinary officer and plans to be an ambassador for raising the profile of the product.
