Deliveroo are hosting an insect pop up this November

It’s now I’m A Celebrity… challenge!

Food delivery giants Deliveroo are launching an insect pop up this November that you’re going to want to try.

A new pop up in Shoreditch next week will work in conjunction with Eat Grub to “bring tasty insect dishes to the British palate”. Working with founders Shami Radia and Neil Whippey Eat Grub hopes to champion the nutritional and environmental benefits of eating insects.

Radia said Eat Grub’s aim is “to normalise entomophagy. We explain the benefits of this food but focus on making sure it tastes amazing.”

Running from 6-10 November, Shoreditch diners will be able to order from a menu featuring insect miang, soy crickets and pandanus leaf, and Holmes’ Som Tam salad of salted crickets and smoked tomato.

“Having a major brand like Deliveroo step into this arena and support us is a huge step forward, and we’re very excited to be working with them.” Radia adds.

Will you give it a go?

You bring the rum, I'll bring the raspberries. Perfect daiquiris all round.
