Could You Eat Bugs?

Entomophagophobia roughly translates to ‘a fear of eating bugs’.

Which I now have, after reading this book:

The Insect Cookbook: Food for a Sustainable Planet by  Arnold van Huis, Henk van Gurp and Marcel Dicke

Could you do it? Could you eat bugs in order to help save the planet?

This book delves into this prickly topic. There are plenty of great recipes included should you feel the urge to fry up some entomo-delights. Personally, I think I just might give Buglava a go, but there are enough recipes (both sweet AND savoury) to tempt even the most pickiest of eaters.

So, what did I honestly think of this book? Why not check out my full review here?

  2. You betcha! But I live in South Korea where beondegi is fairly plentiful and easy to find. Most people don’t like it, but I do. It’s rich in protein and has a rather nutty flavor. But what is beondegi you ask? It’s silkworm pupa: http://www.earthexcursion.com/korean-food-beondegi/
