Entomophagy creates a buzz for London foodies

Posted at 2:00 pm, April 5, 2013 in Arts & Entertainment, Food & Drink

Entomophagy – the stomach-churning art of insect eating – is fast becoming a hot topic amongst the foodies and science boffs of London, who’re keen to bring the merits of insect gobbling to the people. The Wellcome Collection are holding an evening to try and convert you to noshing the buzzy beings for dinner in order to experience what they refer to as the ‘diversity of deliciousness’. Can’t say we’re sold yet, but if you fancy expanding your palate, get down to one of their events on April 30 or Wednesday 1, hosted by the director of boundary-pushing The Nordic Food Lab, Michael BomFrøst and Professor Marcel Dicke. Alongside talks and debates, insect canapés will be served. Don’t fret if they aren’t to your taste, cocktails and beers brewed by the Nordic Food Lab will be on hand to help wash things down. Adam Bloodworth
