Eat the Beetles!
An Exploration Into Our Conflicted Relationship With InsectsBook - 2017
Meet the beetles: there are millions of them and many fewer of the rest of us mammals, birds, and reptiles. Since before recorded history, humans have eaten insects. While many get squeamish at the idea, entomophagy - people eating insects - is a possible way to ensure a sustainable and secure food supply for the eight billion of us on the planet. From upscale restaurants where black ants garnish raw salmon to grubs as pub snacks in Paris and Tokyo, Eat the Beetles! weaves these cultural, ecological, and evolutionary narratives to provide a humorous exploration of entomophagy.
