Event description

Description

Insects have been an important part of the human diet for millennia. Join Adam Brody, founder of Brooklyn's CricketFarm, for a hands-on experience in cooking with crickets. Currently, crickets and other insects are eaten around the world and prized for being tasty, healthy and incredibly easy to raise. Crickets have the potential to be truly sustainable, using a fraction of the resources that other animal (and many vegetable) protein do. While there is a recent trend towards pricey cricket products, Brody believes that crickets should be inexpensive, accessible, and even homegrown. Brody will be joined by a Franklin Institute science educator to further explore the environmental impacts of including insects like crickets into a well-balanced diet. In the class, we will discuss the basics of cricket farming at home. We will also explore recipes from various cultures that cook with crickets and make our own tasty cricket appetizers inspired by these recipes. This program is offered in partnership with the Franklin Institute as part of the Kitchen Science programming series.
