Andrew Zimmern: Alternative Protein

Slide 5 of 10

Bugs

"Sure, you might have an aversion to eating bugs, but they don’t taste as strange as you’d think. Gene Rurka, international consultant on exotic global foods for the Explorer’s Club in New York, created these bites: banana canapés topped with maggots, worm-zels (worms baked into a pretzel shape), tarantula, scorpion and herb cream cheese on cucumber and teriyaki cockroach. His rule of thumb is that people will try anything as long as they are familiar with two or three ingredients."
