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.
