A previous New York Entomological Society meeting about a Brooklyn Bugs event.
Brooklyn Bugs is very excited to host the New York Entomological Society's monthly meeting with a fun night of edible insects, insect cocktails, and presentations. The menu will feature ten unique and delicious dishes that are sure to have everyone buzzin' with excitement. Both the Society and Brooklyn Bugs 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. But we want to change that. 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. Come hear about insect cuisine and sample the specialty dishes!
