Will eating insects save our Earth? A gastronomic adventure into the newest superfood with Copenhagen’s Nordic food lab.
Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. In Bugs, director Andreas Johnson follows a team from Copenhagen-based Nordic Food Lab as they forage, farm, cook and taste insects around the world.
This aspect of BUGS – its willingness to push at questions that often lie beneath the surface of entomophagy-based discourse – really appealed to me.
GS is one of most compelling documentaries about food in the past few years.
