“Learning about the captivating subject of edible insects from local entomologist Skye Blackburn was absolutely life-changing. Regarding human consumption of insects, Skye taught me about how relevant and important this practice is; for nutritional, environmental, sustainable, cultural and historical reasons. She encouraged me to look into my own Chinese heritage, where we have been eating insects for thousands of years and this in turn led to the creation of new dishes for my menu. I think what is so amazing about Skye is her exceptional ability to make this often ’taboo' subject so accessible to all. She is a natural teacher and her inquisitive, brilliant mind and genuine desire to share her knowledge with others, with the hope of making this world a better place, is inspirational. Before I met Skye I suffered from entomophobia, an extreme and persistent fear of insects. Now, I look upon them with sheer curiosity, fascination and appreciation.” - Kylie Kwong
