Celebrating National Insect Week, Grub Kitchen (based in Pembrokeshire) are bringing you an amazing and unique pop-up experience at the Celtic Manor in Newport.
Behind the concept are chef Andy Holcroft and entomologist (insect scientist) Dr Sarah Beynon, who were the subject of BBC documentary ‘The Bug Grub Couple’.
Their aim is to turn bug-munching from novelty to normalcy, introducing your palates to the many delicious and nutritious edible insects that are part of everyday diets in many parts of the world.
Experience the ‘wonder food of the future’ as Chef Andy Holcroft turns high protein critters into flavoursome creations with amazing nutritional benefits.
Grub Kitchen’s philosophy promotes sustainable local produce combined with the practice of eating insects, or ‘entomophagy’. Alongside innovative insect dishes with mind-blowing flavour combinations, diners at our prickly pop-up can also enjoy delicious craft beers and insect-based cocktails.
