Why Edible Insects?
We are on the precipice of taking a giant leap into the future of food and thrilled to explore the gastronomical, sustainable, and ecologically friendly aspects of entomophagy.
While many cultures around the world have been dining on insects as a part of their diet, the Western world has carried a stigma that has discouraged this practice.
As environmental concerns rise, we’re finding convincing evidence that eating insects can provide a viable, nutritious, and sustainable source of food.
Our goal is to shine a light on these numerous benefits, shift the perspective and open the conversation; turn this from weird and gross, to normal and delicious. We are doing this in fun and festive fashion, rooted in academia, but with the Brooklyn edge.
