Did you know insects form part of the traditional diets of an estimated 2 billion people? Here in the US, insects are starting to make appearances on menus, and in snack products like protein bars and chi(r)ps.

We noticed some of our favorite chefs are also testing their culinary boundaries in this arena (see Linger), and in many more ways—in the spirit of friendly, creative challenges, and to honor national No Kid Hungry month, Denver chefs are partnering with Cooking Matters Colorado and sponsors for the first-ever culiNary cricKet cHallenge. The in-restaurant challenge begins with five different surprise ingredients and five restaurants and will hop from restaurant to restaurant, totaling 20 chefs and 20 challenge ingredients. The revenue generated from the challenge ingredient specials will benefit Cooking Matters’ food skills and nutrition education efforts to help ensure every child gets the healthy food they need, every day.

Be sure to visit for a list of sponsors and restaurants, and please don’t be surprised when some actual crickets make appearances along the way!
