What you'll do
You are in Cape Town, so you will definitely be visiting Cape Town's trendy and alterantive Woodstock area. This is also where you will find 'The Insect Experience'. I will meet you in Woodstock at 'The Insect Experience' where I will take through the dishes and the tastes and textures you will experience in each dish. There will be 2 savoury dishes and 1 dessert dish to give you the complete tasting experience. You will be guided a the dishes all made from fresh local ingredients and all containing insects. The dishes will be served to you in a beautiful plating style, ending on a delicious dessert made from a local Cape Townian company Gourmet Grubb's insect ice cream. Insects are an age old food source, and many modern consumers have never experienced eating insects. I will take you through why insects are a great food source and show you how to introduce in your food in a delicious and tasty way. There are souvenirs should you want to take home some of the experience.
I spent 7 years researching insects as an alternative food source trying to find ways to modernise insects for the new age consumer. I developed the world's first dairy alternative made from insects, which is served as a gourmet ice cream. I've since created a tasting style menu which allows people to come and experience insects in a new and delicious way at South Africa's first insect concept store called 'The Insect Experience'. This is tasting experience where I will guide you through a tasting menu made up of insect dishes and have a culinary experience. This experience introduces you to insects in a way you have never experienced them before.
