Steel your stomach for a meal unlike any you've ever had. On Monday October 3 at Grub Food Van in Fitzroy, the Social Food Project's Ben Mac will serve up a sustainable harvest-style tasting event featuring creepy, crawly dishes including ant crepes and tempura cricket San Choy Bow.

The event is part of this year's Environmental Film Festival Australia, and is inspired by a trio of documentaries in the program – Bugs on the Menu, Kubo's Crickets and Sustainable – that explores ways of overcoming a global food shortage including entomophagy.

The concept of eating insects certainly isn't a new one, but in practice it remains largely foreign to those of us in the west. Grub's Bug Dinner should prove an interesting challenge for adventurous foodies who pride themselves on their willingness to try new things. And hey, your $140 place at the table includes drinks, which should help you work up the courage to take your first bite.
