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 focus on insect matters with the purpose to overcome the gap of disgust and fear. We create new fields of interaction to arouse the curiosity of consumers about edible insects and inform about the nutritional and environmental value of insects. Besides our street food stand in Berlin, we create new contexts of communication and education through workshops, events, talks and many other activities. You are interested?
Do you want to surprise consumers, clients or friends? Are you searching for an event idea? We organize caterings, pop-ups and events that are inspired by the world of insects and combine cuisine, art and music.
Thanks to cooking classes, workshops and lectures we inform consumers about the nutritional and environmental value of insects, current scientific research projects and the way of cooking and fam edible insects.
Try adding bugs to your favorite dishes! Just substitute the protein source you currently use with a portion of insects for a sustainable, healthy and tasty meal. There are so many options so don‘t be afraid, just go for it.
