Chef Joseph Yoon spent two months immersed with Brood X Cicadas and had no idea how profoundly it would impact his life. Hear his story and the inspiration behind Brooklyn Bugs, founded in 2017 with the mission to raise awareness and appreciation for edible insects. His participation in this global food movement is an extension of his commitment to community. Chef Yoon has also created a special installation as part of the current exhibition Magicicada.
