Are you up for a tasty bug challenge? Yes, if you thought eating bugs was a farce, think again.
In order to educate people about how bugs can be a part of our daily meal, the Stringybark festival at Knox has organised a cooking demo by Local chef Lillie Giang who will whisk Knox tastebuds fast-forward to the future, cooking up a swarm of tasty insect dishes for families to try at this year’s Stringybark festival.
With a unique Asian-Aussie fusion, Lillie will demonstrate how to cook a few simple dishes that the audience can taste and easily prepare for themselves at home.
Sang Choi Bugs, Crispy Tempura Critters, Pad Thai Bugs and Lemon Ant muffins to name a few of the treats planned for the festival.
Lillie aims to show that bugs can easily be disguised in our food in a way that tastes good and looks familiar.
Edible insects will play an undeniable role in the world’s future food and feed security, with intensive farming starting up across the globe, backed by the United Nation’s push to stamp out world hunger and secure a globally sustainable food system.
The products used for the demo will be sponsoredby local importer Oriental Merchant, who are also providing 300 cookbooks to giveaway.
Chef Lillie says, ‘We source our produce from a global seller of certified organic produce so they are the highest quality bugs on the planet for human consumption.’
So pack your bags and head to Rowville Community Centre over the weekend. Bug Appetite!
