Does eating bugs gross you out? Maybe you should reconsider. They are a plentiful, viable source of protein after all, and most of the world is totally cool with it. It’s just the folks from the ol’ US of A, Canada and Europe who hold a taboo against eating insects. The Slow Session & Bug Tasting with Little Herds event at Art.Science.Gallery. might change your mind. Check it out Saturday, June 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
Little Herds is on a mission to change the perception we have against eating bugs. Through children’s education and public events, the group works with chefs, bakers, farmers and businesses to make entomophagy (the practice of eating bugs) a viable market.
This event will feature the founder of Little Herds, Robert Nathan Allan, who will share the history and international culture of edible insects and why they could be our future to sustainable food. Afterward, you can try some samples and will have the opportunity to buy your own ingredients to make the plentiful and sustainable sources of protein a stable in your own home.
The event is free to attend, but you must reserve your spot by registering here.
