Project asks food creatives to put new “spin” on a local dish

Attention food creatives! The Minnesota Silkworm Project is nearing the end of the 2018 growing season. The silkworms we’ve been rearing this summer are beginning to spin cocoons and enter into the pupal stage of their life cycle.

Food creatives, chefs, gastronomic experimentalists — whatever you call yourselves — who are interested in cooking with silkworm pupae are encouraged to contact the Institute of Floating Head Mode through November 1. This year pupae are free in limited quantities while supplies last.

I am the inventor and interplanetary expert practitioner of Floating Head Mode (FhM).

Those who enter FhM can allow the edges of mind to tumble in multiple simultaneous directions on the cosmic conveyor belt like fruits that have no form or substance.

In recent sessions, my spectral form has explored the intimacies of the decomposition of organic matter, soil nutrient cycling, and the lives of sundry soil-dwelling organisms.

Other FhM sessions have involved developing paraformic relationships with insects and the plants that they live with. It has been a pleasure to use FhM as a way to nudge appreciation and understanding of these organisms among the human community whose ignorance of them is widely accepted.
