Waiter! There's a bug in my soup!
Well, that's what you ordered Sir, a mini-livestock entomophalic delight of the day.
Bugs are on our future plate, with a population that's supposed to reach 10 billion. We won't be able to give up all of the land that feeding our present livestock demands.
I've tried grasshoppers (minus the scratchy legs) and small worms. Neither was disgusting, but I'm sure it's all in how they're prepared. The worms were baked and smoked, and were especially tasty, but then they were small and not very juicy to begin with. The grasshoppers were deep fried and not seasoned enough.
My daughter and her boyfriend, both gourmands, paid an outrageous amount of money to go to a lunch in London produced by a famous foraging restaurant in Copenhagen, which descended on London during the Olympics hysteria.
Amongst other delights, they were served ants, specially cultivated ants which taste of lemongrass apparently. The ants were served live, but chilled so they wouldn't move.
Why not just use lemongrass?????
I am so NOT into this...I can't stand watching that travel chef guy that goes around finding bugs all over the place and eats them and then tries to entice normal people to enjoy them the way he does!
You like lobster right? DYK that back in the colonial days that lobster was considered 'junk' and fed to the pigs as slop?
