Grasshoppers and silkworm pupae were common foods until 80's in Korea. As our economy advanced, we have come to consume more meat and sugar, rather than insects.
After the Food and Agriculture Organization's report on edible insects, people are becoming more interested in them. Even some countries that have never eaten insects before, like European countries and Northern America countries, are starting to invest in entomophagy, the practice of consuming insects.
Inspired by our history, we began researching what we had eaten in the past. Edible insects are now considered as a promising food source for the future. Our goal is to reintroduce and reinvent of eating insects.
We also run an "entomophagy cafe" in Seoul, Korea
