The most wholesome source of protein on earth cannot be found in any supermarket in the United States, but it can be found right in your backyard! Insects have been a staple food of almost every indigenous culture, not only because of their delicious flavor but also because they provide a more complete protein than soy, meat, or fish, and are concentrated sources of calcium, niacin, magnesium, potassium, the B-vitamins, and many other nutrients. As the world heads for food shortages in the next century insects can help meet humanity's growing nutritional needs.

Creepy Crawly Cuisine tells you everything you need to know to make insects a part of your diet. It includes an overview of the use of edible insects by indigenous cultures, information on where to obtain insects and how to store and prepare them, and over 60 gourmet recipes, complete with stunning color photographs, that let you take the cooking of insects to dazzling culinary heights. As practical as it is unique, Creepy Crawly Cuisine is the ideal gift for followers of the Diet for a Small Planet, adventurous epicures, and cooks who think they have seen it all.

This is great for introduceing someone to the idea of eating bugs. I wish they had a little more on gathering your own insects, like how to dig up an ant hill and seperate the ants from the dirt. With the econmie the way it is and doomsday prepping on the rise we may see more gathering and consumeing insects in western culture.
It was FUN to gross the kids out. Not much get to them but the thought of eating bug creeped them out and made me laugh. I think that bug will be on our menu soon. They are high I protein and cheap to breed. This book is a wonderful introduction to the future of food!
We may all be eating insects, to supplement our diet, before long, if present trends continue. This is a pretty good start.
