The Insect Cookbook

It's been estimated that there are at least one 10 quintillion individual insects alive at any given moment — making them a pretty obvious source of food given the ever-dwindling natural resources in our world — assuming you can get over that fact that you're eating, well, bugs. The The Insect Cookbook embraces the idea of bugs as food, looking at them as a sustainable source of protein for years to come. Starting off with interesting perspectives from insect-eating advocates the world over, the book goes on to cover the healthiness of ingesting those little creepy crawlers. It then details a number of recipes for preparing bugs in ways you never thought possible, like risotto, ravioli, insect burgers, and more. So the next time you see some of these guys moving around your yard, you may just look at them a little differently.
