Brooklyn Bugs' mission is to raise appreciation and awareness of edible insects through delicious, fun, and creative programming. After producing NYC’s first festival dedicated to edible insects over Labor Day Weekend in 2017, Brooklyn Bugs received notable press that shared its interest in promoting the gastronomical, sustainable and ecologically friendly aspects of entomophagy or the human consumption of insects.
We are committed to educate and encourage people that this is not a food trend, but a movement that will continue to grow worldwide.
May 15th - We're happy to be making our debut in the Napa Valley, but we're sorry this is for a private event. Hope to come again for a public event next time.
Private Event @ The Battery
May 17th - San Francisco
The Battery is pleased to welcome Brooklyn Bugs for their debut in San Francisco for a hands-on, delicious presentation of edible insects. Nine delicious bites of food will be offered for each guest along with a special bug cocktail, as Chef Joseph Yoon gives a presentation on why this is not the newest food trend, but a movement that the UN endorsed in their FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) Report in 2013.
