Cooking up new-style menus with insects



The speciality dish at the Sandia Mexican restaurant in Toulouse, France.
Called Los Gusanos this traditional Mexican dish translates to English as …worms. In this case mealworms. Served with bread and salad with salsa to dip.
Chef, Jean-Luc Trimaille says: “I had never cooked insects before, but they’re very easy to cook as you just saw, and as for the taste, I found that, when I first smelled it, it made me think of mushrooms right away.”
The idea to introduce the dish came from Trimaille’s Mexican born wife, Monica Juarez.
Customer G�rard Roussin is trying Los Gusanos for the first time. He says: “It’s like small pasta, it has a crunchy taste, it’s nice.”
And it seems, he’s already a convert: “If you manage to say ‘Listen, it’s full of protein, even if it’s made of insects, of worms or whatever else,” as long as you transform it, as long as you present it in another way, then I think it has a bright future.”
Sharing the dish with Roussin, Dominique Ruffi� says a little salsa helps the worms go down: “I forget that they are worms, so I can eat them. I was worried, but now with the spicier taste, it’s ok, it’s going well.”
To prepare Los Gusanos, Sandia restaurant has to source mealworms bred specifically for human consumption, which until recently would have proved difficult in Europe. But now, just a few miles away from Toulouse in Saint-Orens-de-Gameville, French company Micronutris has set up what it claims to be the first insect farm for food products in Europe.
CEO C�dric Auriol decided to set the farm up after a trip to Asia where insects are eaten regularly in countries such as Tha�land and China.
Auriol says insect farming is the future: “Compared to a traditional meat farm, an insect farm will give out 100 times less greenhouse gas, up to 50 times less ammonia and it will consume much less water.”
Insects also offer the advantage of being consumed in their entirety, unlike traditional animal products.
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has been researching, raising awareness and supporting projects for insect farming for human food since 2003. It estimates that by 2050, there will be 9 billion people on earth and current food production will have to double. It says insects are part of the traditional diets of at least 2 billion people across Asia, Africa and Latin America and more than 1.900 species are used as food.
Micronutris specialises in mealworms and crickets. Auriol explains that like us, the crickets need their five a day: “We create hiding areas by using these egg boxes, then we give them food which is dried and 100% made of vegetables, so wheat flour, and then in order for them to have their water and vitamin intake, we also give them fresh fruits and vegetables.”
Crickets are usually ready to be eaten once they’re eight weeks old.
The mealworms are bred using beetles and reared in growth units where humidity is up to 60%. They are fed also with wheat flour and carrots until they are 12 weeks old when they are ready to eat. There are about 30 million worms in the breeding area.
Auriol says: The larvae is either brought in or created here, or we let it reach nymph stage and then the nymph will turn into a beetle and those beetles are our breeders, so they are in a way our own stallions here in this breeding farm.”
Entomologist J�r�my Defrize is in charge of the health and development of the insects. He says they have great nutritional value:
“They’re very rich in protein as much as traditional meats. Then we can find unsaturated fatty acids like omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 as well as minerals and vitamins.”
Micronutris has created a series of products ranging from dried cricket appetisers and salted, spicy mealworms to chocolates, cakes and biscuits.

1st female chef in 50 years joins Michelin club



1. Various exteriors of Maison Pic Restaurant.
2. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef :
“I think France was a bit like the last bastion of resistance and maybe up until now it wasn’t easy in the spirit of the Michelin Guides to promote a woman, at any rate there were female candidates, but maybe not yet ready for the 3 stars”.

3. Various Michelin Guides where the restaurant is mentioned.
4. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef :
“In September 1992 I entered in the kitchen and that marked me. I stayed for a year and then I left the industry and I returned to the kitchen when we lost the third star, and it was like a first time. I came back to fight and my motivation was ten times higher”.

5. Wide boutique hall
6. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef:
“On one side the existing team and I shared competences, on the other side it was not easy to take over, we had moments of rebellion when people didn’t accept my way of doing things.”

7. Anne Sophie and colleagues in the kitchen
8. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef:
“I think it is more difficult for a woman because it is more difficult to prove her competence, a woman always feels culpable in a job which she feels is not destined for her, I realise now that I have been haunted by this feeling of guilt.”

9. Restaurant web site.
10. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef:
“But the most difficult thing is to find your place in this environment, and also to be a mother and to combine the two so to be efficient at work.”

11. Various Anne Sophie in the kitchen
12. SOUNDBITE: (French) Olivier Sauman, Second Chef:
“Yes I think at the moment she is predominantly motherly, she is our mother, she spoils us.”
13. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef :
(Ann Sophie laughs) “I believe that is my nickname now, that’s what they call me, mummy, behind my back of course.”

14. Various food preparation in the kitchen.
15. SOUNDBITE: (French) Anne Sophie Pic, Three-Star Michelin Chef:
“What I wish now is for people coming here to eat, whether they find it feminine or not find a cuisine with a clear identity.”

16. Wide exterior 7 Pic Bistro
17. Set up shots Aude Rambuer, Chef, 7 Pic Bistro
18. SOUNDBITE: (French) C, Chef, 7 Pic Bistro:
“It is more feminine, more calm, it is not the same way of doing things.”
19. Table being set
20. Anne Sophie tasting a dish

LEAD IN:

French Chef Anne-Sophie Pic has won entry into a very exclusive, usually all-male club

She is France’s first female chef to win three Michelin stars for more than 50 years.

STORYLINE

Anne Sophie’s restaurant, La Maison Pic, is located in Valence in the south of France. Anne Sophie is the fourth woman to be given the award since the Michelin guide began using the system in 1926.

Other women to have received the prize in the past are Marguerite Bise in 1951, and Eugenie Brazier and Marie Bourgeois, in 1933.

Anne Sophie says France was the last bastion of resistance for awarding women the honour.

The family restaurant is no stranger to accolades. Her grandfather Andre won three stars in 1934 and her father Jacques in 1973.

Anne Sophie grew up in the restaurant. She was taught by her father and his colleagues. Sophie explains that she first started in the kitchen in 1992.

The restaurant had lost a star grading, and she was determined to win it back. Her father died in September of the same year.

Anne Sophie explains that she worked well with the existing team when she took over the kitchen, but there were a few moments of rebellion when ideas clashed.
