Intrigued by the idea of edible insects? Join Slow Food Austin to learn about (and even taste!) entomophagy, the practice of eating bugs. Robert Nathan Allen, founder of Little Herds, will share the history and international culture of edible insects and why they could be our future to sustainable food.

Co-sponsored by Art.Science.Gallery, the Slow Session will conclude with assorted samples, recipes and the opportunity to buy your own ingredients to make one of the world’s most plentiful and sustainable sources of protein a staple in your own home!

Robert Nathan Allen has been chosen as a Slow Food USA delegate to attend Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto 2014.

“This year, the theme of Terra Madre and Salone del Gusto is food diversity as an alternative to industrial agriculture, especially as expressed through Slow Food’s Ark of Taste and Presidia projects.”

“Salone del Gusto is a global showcase for traditional and innovative food producers. SFUSA will be working in close collaboration with Slow Food International to bring exhibitors from the U.S. to take part in this vibrant market place.”
