The Nordic Food Lab has announced that, along with the University of Copenhagen, it has received 3.6 million Danish Kroner (roughly $624,000) from The Velux Foundation to fund their research on "insect gastronomy." It takes a lot of work for the lab to make bugs delicious, so the money will undoubtedly help their efforts. The lab has also announced that the newly expanded project will have an advisory board including Mark Bomford of the Yale Sustainable Food Project and chef Alex Atala of D.O.M. in Brazil. Expect more cockroach dishes to come.
