The Delicacy

The Delicacy is now available for digital streaming on SOMM TV! This film is the story of sea urchins – how it’s harvested, how it’s consumed, the role it plays in nature, and the lives of those who bring it to the table. TBF’s Executive Director, Tom Ford, is featured and highlights the role sea urchins play in Southern California’s ecosystem. Check out this beautiful documentary!
