Québec City Convention Centre


When Chefs meet in Québec City for the conference Insects to Feed the World 2022

May 6, 2022

From June 12 to 16, 2022, the 4th edition of the international conference Insects to Feed the World 2022 (IFW 2022) will be held at the Québec City Convention Centre. This major convention includes a whole “culinary creativity” component, which is the result of a new collaboration between our chef Simon Renaud and chef Joseph Yoon, the event’s culinary director.

Cooking with insects

The 500 attendees expected to participate in the event will have the chance to taste original menus created by Chef Yoon and Chef Renaud, whether it be during lunch, coffee breaks or evening banquets. Sophisticated flavors and Québec gastronomy will be honored—with specially selected ingredients from arthropods.

The agri-food reality of tomorrow

For Chef Renaud, concocting dishes with edible insects is a first! And it’s an experience he seems to enjoy, perhaps even to the point of using these products on a regular basis in certain dishes.

“The textures and flavors are so interesting and out of the ordinary! When I hear Chef Yoon speak passionately about the potential of insects to feed the planet and save the environment, it speaks to me. It’s great that such an event is being held in Québec City,” added Chef Renaud.
