DISCOVER THE MIKROKOSMOS
Insects can apparently be insignificant or repellent but actually they are underestimate. Without insects life on earth wouldn't be possible: They can be the solution to the future food problem.
STREET FOOD HEROS
We take part in street food markets in order to get closer to the people. We offer a good alternative to meat combined with different dishes made with biological and seasonal products. A healthy superfood surprisingly delicious.
A GARDEN FOR MIKROKOSMOS
We had the pleasure of getting in touch with the Prinzessinnen Garten collective of Hermannstrasse 100 in Berlin. The new space of this co-gardening project is a deconsecrated cemetery, full of history in the heart of Neukoelln.
COOKING CLASS & TEACHING
Our Workshops on „Cooking with insects“ and on „Growing insects“ in Berlin want to increase the understanding of these animals and are a beautiful way to meet new people and share opinions, emotions and fears…
Thanks to the collaboration with the Berlin beekeeper Erica Mayr, we finally have adopted our own two beehives on the roof of the Zeughof complex in Kreuzberg.
MikroKosmos is a “growtainer” of ideas and projects that deal with edible insects and help overcome the disgust and fear towards them. We create new communication and educational contexts to awaken consumer curiosity about edible insects and inform about their nutritional and environmental value. Besides our restaurant in Berlin, we create interaction through our presence at street food markets, events, fairs as well as through our workshops, cooking classes and many other activities. You are curious?
Do you want to surprise consumers, customers or friends? Are you looking for an event idea? We organize caterings, pop-ups and events inspired by the world of insects and combining cuisine, art and music.
Through cooking classes, workshops and lectures, we educate consumers about the nutritional and environmental value of insects, current scientific research projects and how to farm and eat edible insects.
Try adding insects to your favorite dishes! Just replace the protein source you use with a serving of insects and you have a sustainable, healthy and tasty meal. There are so many possibilities, so don’t be afraid and just try it out.
