The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook
|Author||David George Gordon|
|Media type||Print (Hardcover and paperback)|
The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook is an insect cookbook by David George Gordon.
The book has recipes that are organized by bug and it says how to store the insects. Some of the insects are crickets, grasshoppers, locusts, termites, ants, and bees. There is also a list of references, places to purchase insects, and organizations that put on insect events at which bugs are available to sample. The book says that U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows as many as 56 insect parts in every peanut butter and jelly sandwich, up to 60 aphids in 31⁄2 ounces of frozen broccoli, and two or three fruit-fly maggots per 200 grams of tomato juice.
A California Rare Fruit Growers, Inc. review says, "I think this book is a good value and that more eating of insects should be encouraged. My own limited experiences eating larvae and scorpions have been pleasant enough." A Discover review says, "Insects aside, Gordon's recipes are tasty and well chosen--as are the many informative slices of arthropod lore. Bon appetit!"
