How would you feel about popping a scorpion

in your mouth? How about chowing down on a

bowl of earthworms? While this sounds like an

episode of Fear Factor, in many countries insects

are a dietary staple and for good reason. Insects

are excellent sources of lean protein and have

a much smaller impact on the environment

compared to other protein sources. After this

workshop you will understand which insects

are safe to eat, where to get them, and how to

prepare them. We will also have an optional

insect taste testing for the culinary adventurous.

Everyone from avid insectivores to staunch

entomophobes are welcome.
