Brooklyn Bugs is…

an advocate for edible insects, and their mission is to raise appreciation and awareness for them through delicious, educational, and creative programming.  Their work has been featured on the Smithsonian Channel, New York Times, NPR, Food and Wine, and Gizmodo, as they strive to introduce edible insects as a sustainable source of protein that can be found in your pantry, eaten as a snack, and beautifully plated by chefs. 

They recently began to conduct research with San Diego State University to produce a lexicon on the properties of edible insects—a flavor bible on cooking with bugs which will be an invaluable aid to help everyone understand how they can best utilize them culinarily.
