ANT(i)PASTI

Ant(i)Pasti is a unique patė recipe created using the Baltic forest ants as the main ingredient. The recipe was developed in collaboration with a Latvian Chef Janis Sprogis and later served at a public tasting where fourty people tasted an insect for the first time. The Ant(i)Pasti has a distinct taste of lemon and lemon-grass, that is typical for european ants. Ants are diverse in taste, and depending on the chosen species different flavours such as popcorn, bacon can be achieved. The dish was developed as part of the Anthropocene Cookbook event series 2017.
