dible was created in 2000 to broaden the minds and open up the palates of those of us in the western world who are fairly limited in culinary terms. After years of travelling to the farther flung regions of the globe, and seeing all manner of unique and unusual delicacies being consumed, our founder decided that he would like to make these experiences available to us.
Edible aims to bring you delicacies that you may never have considered or perhaps seen before, whether it be recreations of ancient aphrodisiacs consumed in the court of Queen Cleopatra, Insects eaten by the street traders of Phnom Penh or more sedate but equally interesting fayre such as rare chewing gum from Japan with unique weird and wonderful flavours to rare chocolate, teas or coffees found by our epicurean explorers around the globe. Some of these items are produced in Edible’s kitchens and are products of our very own creation and others may come direct from an Indigenous farmer or even a major manufacturer.
For centuries Insect consumption has been part of the everyday diet of many of the world's human inhabitants from the Aborigines of Australia and their favoured delicacy of Witjutie grubs to the night markets of Thailand where crisp, fried Locusts and Beetles are favourite snacks to be consumed with an ice cold beer! We in the west have closed our minds to Insect eating (also known as Entomophagy) but In doing so have forgotten that these are one of the most nutritious foods available, higher in protein levels than chicken and cholesterol free. Edible has sourced for your perusal some of the World's best known Insect delicacies and also created a few of It's own value added Insect specialties.
