A Valentine’s date like no other
When we approached Nicci Gurr from Home Gurr’Own with our idea for an insect-themed Valentine’s meal, we got just the reaction we were after. “Wow! We’d love to be involved. How exciting!” By chance, Nicci was already smitten with Eat Grub, the Brighton-based purveyor of edible bugs.
Scientist, author, star of radio and TV, Dr Erica McAlister will be sharing her love of insects as well as enlightening us with tales of their quirky, fascinating and often shocking behaviour – right outside our back door.
Before sitting back to enjoy Erica’s saucy tales or entomological erotica, you’ll be treated to a bug-themed menu (insects optional) including a welcome cocktail, canapes, main course and dessert.
Edible insects will be provided by Eat Grub — a boundary-breaking sustainable food brand that aims to revolutionise Western food culture by introducing insects as a staple part of it.
This is a ‘bring a bottle’ event, with no corkage fee. Find out more about the work of Erica McAlister at the Natural History museum.
