Chef Chris Pead

Cooking wit󰇭 fresh Ke󰇰󰇵 The coastline is abundant with prolific seaweed and invasive mussel species that can be harvested. Chef Chris Pead forages on our coastline weekly and turns these sustainably harvested ingredients into an ocean inspired meal. Seaweed has some key nutritional benefits with an estimated 93 bio available nutrients and 56 available minerals and trace elements. It is believed to have antibacterial, antiviral and antiparasitic properties and is said to have more Vitamin C than oranges, ten times the calcium of milk and 25 times the iron in beef. Types of seaweed in use at the Great White House - it is recommended that one eats from all the colour groups: Green: Sea lettuce, ulva, codium Brown: Kelp, hanging wrack Red: Nori, tongue weed

Did yo󰇼 kno󰇿: •

Mussels are sedentary and fix themselves to substrata such as rocks by byssal threads or “beards”. These chitinous threads are produced as a liquid which then sets in the seawater.

Mussels feed entirely on plankton. To do this they can filter up to 65 litres of water a day.

Tasty, nutritious and low in sodium and saturated fat, mussels provide a readily absorbed source of B & C vitamins, amino acids, Omega 3 fatty acids, and vital minerals including iron, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.

Ounce for ounce mussel meat contains more protein than beef stock, much less fat, many more mineral nutrients and a quarter of the calories.

Meet Suzi our Southern Right Whale

Southern Right Whale Eubaleaena australis Displayed overhead is the authentic skeleton of a fully grown female Southern Right Whale, retrieved from a carcass washed up in Blue Water Bay, near Pearly Beach, in September 2005. The Whale’s death was likely the result of a collision with a ship. The reconstructed bone fractures are indicated by contrasting brick colours on the skeleton. The process of restoration took seven years. It was mounted here in May 2012. The oating bones towards the rear of the skeleton

are the remains of the hind limbs - it serves the purpose of holding the sexual organs in position. The hind legs of these mammals were lost in the evolution of their species. Life size replicas of the ear, eye and heart have been placed in the skeleton, along with some baleen plates. Each upper jaw would have 222 baleen plates used for filter feeding of plankton. The skeleton is 14m long and weighs 1,5 tons. An adult southern right can weigh up to 60 tons.

The Birkenhead The HMS Birkenhead was wrecked on 26 February 1852, while transporting troops to Algoa Bay at Danger Point near Gansbaai, 87 miles (140 kilometres) from Cape Town. Only 193 of the estimated 643 people on board survived, and the soldiers’ chivalry gave rise to the unofficial “women and children first” protocol when abandoning ship, while the “Birkenhead drill” of Rudyard Kipling’s poem came to describe courage in the face of hopeless circumstances. The wreck of the Birkenhead lies in 30 metres of water, less than 2km from land. The collection of artefacts at the Great White House is from the archaeological and salvage excavation of 1986-88 in the search for the supposed treasure 250,000 pounds in “specie” (gold and silver coins), which was the military pay packet for the troops fighting up in East London.
