The Witte Museum is serving a different kind of "hops" for its Salud! Culinary Nights dinner series. Chefs Stephen Paprocki, Ernest Lopez and Pastry Chef of Eilan Hotel will prepare a three-course meal incorporating insects, a theme inspired by Curator of Archaeology Dr. Harry Schafer. Schafer, and Bug Vivant founder Meghan Curry, will lead diners in lessons about bugs and their untapped potential in the kitchen as sustainable protein along with their important history in the lives of hunter gatherers. 

The menu includes items such as a spinach salad with goats's milk ricotta cheese, roasted beets and a "caviar" containing mixed hymenopteran larvae and Pizza Pissalediére made with meal worms and Texas goat cheese. Each menu item will be paired with a beer from Karbach Brewery. The event will be hosted in the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio Demonstration Kitchen. The class is reserved for adults 21 and over and limited to 60 seats. 

$45-50, 6:30-8:30pm, Wednesday, August 12, 3801 Broadway St., (210) 357-1900.
