Grub pop-up at Monikers

March 17, 2014

From 4 – 8 March 2014, we opened our doors to the public for the first time to treat them to a seven course taster menu straight from the Grub kitchen. We had a beautiful space for our first outing – a converted school which fit perfectly with what we were trying to achieve: an education of the mind as well as the palette.

We were extremely nervous considering we had only tried our dishes on friends and family, who don’t tend to be the harshest critics, but we were overwhelmed by the reaction – both pre and post event. The food was extremely well received and soon people forgot altogether that they were eating insects. Mission accomplished! We never set out to be a gimmick or a novelty; we want to be as sustainable as our products are and that requires people to love our food.

A big thanks needs to go to our wonder chef Seb Holmes, as well as Chang beer and Storm Communications for their support in getting us launched.
