The event was held at Trinity College, Cambridge, and tickets sold out fast.
Using sustainably harvested insects courtesy of a family business in Japan* we laid out a selection of canapes, each matched with a different pair of wines...
For a description of the event and one person's reflections on tastes and pairings, see this fantastic blog post by Sioned Cox. Her description of the evening as "sophisticated & whimsical, elegant & messy" perfectly sums up the event and hopefully most of my life.
Here are some more details about the insects we used, and the canapes we prepared:

*admittedly the air miles involved are not so sustainable...but until we have certified producers sustainably harvesting delicious wild-caught insects closer to home, this is the option I'm leaning towards. Happy to discuss other options, though!
