We’re not in kindergarten anymore. The bug-eaters aren’t the people tucked into a corner sneaking flies and ants. They’re openly ingesting large insects during a cooking class.
WHYY’s Carolyn Beeler stopped by a weekend class in a South Philly rowhome where entomophagist David Gracer led a group of adventurous eaters in some bug tasting.
While Gracer says some bugs serve as a great meat alternative, even the pleasant taste of katydids wasn’t enough to make a true convert out of anyone in the class.
