MikroKosmos is a “growtainer” of ideas and projects that wants to help western society get closer to insects, overcoming the gap of disgust and fear. The objective of MikroKosmos is to create new fields of interaction to arouse the curiosity of different consumers about insects matter and the nutritional value of insects. As well as our market stands in Berlin, we are building new contexts of communication and education through our pop-up restaurants, workshops, informative meetings, theatre and other events. For that reason MikroKosmos is proposing three main fields of interaction:
EVENTS Surprising consumers and clients we organize creative pop-up events, catering and private dinners that bring together art, music and cooking inspired by the world of insects.
FOOD MARKET The Market is the place where kitchen and eaters are directly connected. We take part in street food markets in order to get closer to the people. At the Berlin food markets of Markthalle 9 we offer every second Thursday different dishes that combine seasonal bio-products with edible insects permitted by the German law. A healthy superfood surprisingly delicious.
EDUCATION Through workshops, talks, lectures and our website we inform consumers about the nutritional and environmental value, current scientific research projects, infarming possibilities and ways of cooking edible insects
