Horecatrends | Tips for Culinary videos worth watching – week 26


YouTube has been a source of inspiration for spotting trends the past few years. Every day, thousands of movies are uploaded with new and interesting content. We too sometimes use videos as a source of inspiration to write about. With this week again a selection of 3 videos which our colleague Manuel Imanse thinks are worth watching.

This week videos about ‘La Bonnotte de Noirmoutier’, world’s most expensive potatoes and an video about why Pink Himalayan Salt is so expensive. Last but not least: a video about Sea Cucumbers. 

La Bonnotte de Noirmoutier | World’s most expensive potatoes

These artisanal vegetables are grown in sandy soil fertilized by seaweed on an island off the Atlantic coast of France and they cost about 5 dollars per pound. They’re so delicate they must be harvested by hand, and they’re only available 10 days a year. They are served in the most exquisite restaurants and they are one of a kind.

Why is Pink Himalayan Salt so expensive?

Pink Himalayan salt is used in specialty foods, spa treatments, and even home design. 100 grams of it can cost $5 to $8, up to 20 times more than generic table salt! So, why is it so expensive? It is said to have “amazing” health benefits because it contains over 84 different minerals that are filtered out in regular table salt. Interesting video although the actual health benefits have not been proven.

Sea cucumbers

One of the biggest issues the oceans are facing nowadays is overfishing. In one remote coastal village in Madagascar the locals appear to have found an unlikely solution in a strange little sea creature, the sea cucumber. This sea cucumber is a popular aphrodisiac and possibly the fisherman’s salvation. Dadiny, the first business of its kind in Madagascar has recently started farming sea cucumbers, which are under threat. Growing them in designated and contained areas is helping to protect both this important species and other kinds of marine life in the south-west of Madagascar. Because of the part sea cucumbers play in cleaning up the seabed it’s believed that they help maintain stocks of other marine life. Besides being good for the ocean, the locals also earn more money!
