Who's never eaten any insects in his/her life? If you are getting ready to raise your hand with a carefree attitude, take that hand and shove it up to your ... mouth, to help with the pukey feelies that'll come after I tell you; don't be daft of course you've eaten bugs and you keep eating them everyday.

And I'm not talking about eating a big bowl of cherry in the dark, while watching a movie and realising that cherries were full of fruit worms when you've taken a break and turned on the lights *

Very thorough exploration of the subject of eating insects either for fun or to experience something common in other cultures. Chef Gordon often travels the country and was even seen at the Box Trolls Premiere where one of the stars of the film couldn't eat his fried Scorpion since he's allergic to shellfish and they are in the same family. Many helpful tidbits such as this are presented in the book as is the danger of eating raw insects and the parasites they can carry. I had met Chef Gordon at ...more

The recipes all looked really good, but I'm not sure I'm ready to start eating bugs.
