2.   Place the flour, cocoa, brown and caster sugar, butter, vanilla paste and eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.

Insect Ice cream – would you try it?

Insect Ice cream – would you try it?

 

Gourmet Grubb is a Cape Town-based business that has made international headlines for producing ice-cream made out of insect milk. The name EntoMilk™  comes from the term entomophagy, which is the practice of eating insects. The milk is made from sustainably farmed insects, specifically Black Soldier Fly Larvae. Needless to say, this is considered to be significantly more environmentally friendly than the traditional farming of dairy cows. We chat to the product developer, Leah Bessa.

great big story

Mexico’s Zapotecs are an indigenous community living in Oaxaca, Mexico. Before Spanish colonization, Zapotecan civilization was a thriving epicenter of food, culture and tradition. Today, chef Abigail Mendoza is on a mission to keep those traditions alive by cooking the food of her ancestors. All the dishes she cooks—including pre-hispanic mole, stuffed chiles with Oaxaca cheese and atole—are made using ancient techniques. Recognized by the world’s best chefs for her dishes, she hopes to keep the food of her ancestors alive and thriving.
