The story of the sea urchin, from ocean floor to the dinner plate, is the subject of this vibrant documentary that was released for streaming last week on Somm TV. With commentary from food celebrities like Andrew Zimmern and chefs like Kyle Connaughton, it follows the gourmand’s taste, from ancient times to the present, for the pentagonal gonads of the spiny creatures. It shows their habitat and how urchins off the coast of California are harvested.
“The Delicacy” directed by Jason Wise, Forgotten Man Films, Somm Film Series, sommtv.com.
