Eat Grub: The Ultimate Insect Cook Book
Over 55 exciting recipes
Eat Grub: The Ultimate Insect Cook Book features more than 55 exciting recipes using a variety of insects, from grasshoppers to mealworms. It takes its inspiration from cuisines around the word to present a range of small plates, meals, desserts and even cocktails using whole and ground insects.
Entomophagy – eating insects – isn't a new phenomenon. We’ve eaten them for centuries, and many countries around the world continue to enjoy them in modern cuisine. But, insect eating is currently experiencing a rise in popularity. Restaurants are dishing up insects, the UN is publishing reports on the merits of insect-heavy diets and the Nordic Food Lab is exploring how delicious insects can be. The media is now talking about the ethics, the ecological and health benefits, and the economic sense behind incorporating entomophagy into our lives.
