Salud! Culinary Nights: The Bug Dinner

When: Wed., Aug. 12, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 2015

Get to munchin’ on some crunchy bugs at the Witte during its Salud! Culinary Nights dinner series as the museum welcomes chefs Stephen Paprocki and Ernest Lopez. They will join Dr. Harry Schafer, the museum’s curator of archeology, as well as Meghan Curry, founder of Bug Vivant, to educate attendees on the nutritional benefits of eating insects. Dinner will consist of a spinach salad with goat’s milk ricotta cheese, roasted beets and “caviar” containing mixed hymenopteran larvae and Pizza Pissaledière made with meal worms and Texas goat cheese. Food will be paired with beers from Houston’s Karbach Brewery.

Price: $45-$50
