What People Are Saying About Bugs for Beginners


Way more engaging then I possibly imagined.

Kara Krasnoff

Super engaging and fun way to explore the world of bugs! Love it so much can’t wait to try some of the recipes now that I have tips on how to procure some insects!


This book lives up to its name!

Hexen

This a wonderfully edited collection of recipes! The pictures are stellar, information thoughtfully written, and clear in its understanding of people's initial reservations. I appreciated the wine pairing pages--this truly is a complete guide. I also loved the resource lists by country! Honestly, once you consider the popularity of shrimp and soft shell crab, you start to realize how bug eating isn't so strange. Many countries already know the benefits of their consumption--the rest of us are just late to the game. Excellent book!

Of the many bug-related books that I have had the pleasure to read over the years, this has been one of my favorites. In these times of expanding populations, it offers locus solutions and exciting meals.


easy (illustrated) introduction to insect cookin'

Makes for a friendly and easy entry into what might otherwise be unfamiliar terrain for a more global North palate. Very well written and engaging from the first page -- with wonderful photos to boot. Love the incorporation of flavors from the southwest US, too... especially my favorite (sounding), jalapeño chapulines cornbread donuts!
