Chef Andy Holcroft of Grub Kitchen, Britain’s first full-time insect restaurant. How We Get To Next
14 minute lesson

Here’s something for you to chew over…
Who doesn’t need a little more sustainable protein in their diet? Especially at a time when our population is growing and large animal farms are just not a feasible way to give everyone the nutrients they need if we want our planet to survive our use of it.
