Eat Grub’s mission

to convince the West to embrace insects as a food source is a challenge

and one that we couldn’t overcome without good friends. People who love an adventure, whether it is running 10,000 miles in a year or cycling the Alps, especially when it’s fuelled by insect power. They are the revolutionaries and if you want to join them, contact us here

Seb Holmes Top London Chef

Sebby has been working with Eat Grub since 2014. Schooled in the art of Thai street food, he cut his teeth at the much loved Begging Bowl in Peckham before moving to become Head Chef of the highly acclaimed Smoking Goat in Soho.

He is now running his own restaurant called Farang in Highbury, London, which has received fantastic reviews from the likes of Fay Maschler and Jay Rayner. He continues to love working with insects – an underused and underloved ingredient as he puts it – and as Head Chef of Eat Grub he has developed products, run pop-ups and many of his original recipes can be found in our Eat Grub cook book.
