You guys were truly a life saver for my project at Roots, without you guys that “Ants on Koura” dish would not have been possible and changing that dish was NOT an option because that dish was given permission by none other than Rene Redzepi of Noma in Copenhagen. During our time at Noma Tokyo that “Ants on Shrimp” was our opening dish in Tokyo, and I wanted it to be our opening dish at Roots. I was very nervous about the ant situation.

I’m so blessed that you came into Roots the day before my arrival, it was like it was meant to be. You knew a chef from California was in need of ants. Your passion for ants and insects alone will open new boundaries in this industry.
