Beer & Bugs

Hallowe’en is around the corner... let’s sink our teeth into some creepy-crawlies & guzzle some local brew!
Join us for a BEER & BUGS Pairing at the Victory Café on Hallowe'en night. Brought to you by Alimentary Initiatives, co-host of the Future Food Salon in partnership with Beerology
 Thai style crickets

Cookie Martinez and guests will be preparing five different cricket canapés and sweets, each of which will be expertly paired with a craft beer as chosen by Canada’s only Master Cicerone, Mirella Amato.

UPDATE: Beer & Bugs is SOLD OUT. There will be no tickets available at the door                                     
  1. They are sustainably produced, using less water, less land, producing fewer C02 emissions with a high feed to protein produced ratio.
  2. They are nutritious. High in protein, omega three fats and iron. 
  3. They are versatile to cook with. Come and see what we mean.
  4. They are ethically euthanized. Refrigerating and then freezing them slows their metabolism so that they are asleep when you cook them. 
  5. They are found everywhere on the planet, meaning that they do not pose an ecological disaster. They are also capable of being raised in home units. 


       (just kidding)
