Description
With its stylish new package, updated information on the health and environmental benefits of insect eating, and breed-your-own instructions, this new edition of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook is the go-to resource for anyone interested in becoming an entomological epicure. For many Americans, eating a lowly insect is something you'd only do on a dare. But with naturalist and noted bug chef David George Gordon, bug-eating is fun, exciting, and downright delicious! Now you can impress, enlighten, and entertain your family and friends with Gordon's one-of-a-kind recipes. Spice things up at the next neighborhood potluck with a big bowl of Orthopteran Orzo--pasta salad with a cricket-y twist. Conquer your fear of spiders with a Deep-Fried Tarantula. And for dessert, why not try a White Chocolate and Wax Worm Cookie? (They're so tasty, the kids will be begging for seconds!) Today, there are more reasons than ever before to explore entomophagy (that's bug-eating, by the way). It's an environmentally-friendly source of protein: Research shows that bug farming reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is exponentially more water-efficient than farming for beef, chicken, or pigs. Mail-order bugs are readily available online--but if you're more of a DIY-type, The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook includes plenty of tips for sustainably harvesting or raising your own. Filled with anecdotes, insights, and practical how-tos, The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook is a perfect primer for anyone interested in becoming an entomological epicure.

Before Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain began seeking out exotic and outright bizarre foods, The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook established insect cuisine as the new food frontier and has sold consistently over the last decade. Today, insect eating is more than just a fringe movement and this revised edition of The Eat -a-Bug Cookbook is a complete primer for everyone who wants to source, cook, and broaden their culinary horizons with edible insects"--
