Introducing The Insect Experience, South Africa’s edible insects restaurant. Insects are a sustainable food for our future. Do you agree?
‘In the News’ Intro:
Since June 2019, food scientist Leah Bessa and her partners have been operating a pop-up bug restaurant called the The Insect Experience – believed to be South Africa’s first all-insect restaurant. The bug-inspired meals were designed by chef Mario Barnard, who first started cooking with insects after a trip to Thailand. During his trip, he was encouraged to eat tarantulas and scorpions.
