We are edible insect ambassadors.

 

Our mission is to raise appreciation and awareness for edible insects through delicious, educational, and creative programming.  Our work has been featured on the Smithsonian Channel, New York Times, NPR, Boston Globe, Food and Wine, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Forbes, and Gizmodo, as we help explain why the United Nations endorses edible insects to address the issues of food security and sustainability.

We strive to introduce edible insects and normalize them in America as a sustainable source of protein that can be found in your pantry, eaten as a snack, and beautifully plated by chefs. 

We recently completed our Spring College Tour and are currently booking for the 2019/20 Academic Year. Please contact us if you’re interested in receiving more information.

Please get in contact with us if you would like us to come to your school, university, or museum for the upcoming 2019-20 Season.


We love this piece that Yara Elmjouie did with AJ+ as they discuss the psychology behind why we find eating insects disgusting. Fun, engaging, and educational, this is a video we’d highly recommend you watch as we serve an eleven course dinner featuring edible insects!

We’re honored that the World Economic Forum featured us in their video on edible insects.


We are honored that James Beard Winning food.curated. shared our story in our favorite video feature ever! This video not only shares our mission and highlights our food, but also shows the colorful personality of our Executive Director and Chef Joseph Yoon.
