SPIN YOUR DISH WITH SILKWORMS. SHARE WITH OTHERS. THEN TELL US ABOUT IT.
Calling all Twin Cities’ area cooks, foodies, chefs!
Green Noise is offering silkworm pupae for food artists who wants to cook with Minnesota-grown silkworms.
Yes, silkworms. Silkworms grown right here in Minnesota. For human consumption. Like people do in Korea, where silkworm pupae are commonly sold as “street food” by vendors in the open air market. They are called beondegi are a snack food.
This project is studying silkworms as a nutritious, clean (i.e., low input, low energy) and locally grown protein source. But we need help to learn how to prepare them in ways that are appealing to most Midwesterners who typically do not think of insects as food.
If interested, please fill out this online form on or before August 4, 2017. Distribution of silkworm pupae will begin August 6 and will continue while supplies last through August 25.
