First Sentence
There are about 20,000 living species in the order Orthoptera, which, in the words of my favorite know-it-all, the nineteenth-century naturalist Reverend J. G. wood, contains "some of the finest and, at the same time, the most grotesquely formed members of the insect tribe." Read the first page

I had the pleasure of assisting Mr. Gordon at the Pacific Science Center here in Seattle, where he prepared Orzo with Crickets for an audience of stunned adults and captivated kids (not to mention animal-rights protesters--forget the Makah whale hunts, let's keep people from eating insects!). I was skeptical at first--and it *was* disconcerting to see "bugs" in the sample that I ate--but the bottom line is any dish with orzo, peppers, garlic, and butter will taste good! The crickets add a mild flavor and interesting texture. Try it. You might squirm at first, but you'll like it.
Maybe this will be the next Seattle craze to sweep the nation. Move over, Starbucks!

OK, I admit it. I don't like insects. And judging by the insect attacks I had to endure as a kid, the feeling's probably mutual. Flies, wasps, beetles...it's real and it's personal. Arachnids? Even worse. The only arthropods I can suffer are butterflies. On a really good day (!), I can also suffer moths.

Since I'm more or less phobic to insects and other creepy bugs (the word "creepy" is redundant when placed immediately before "bug"), I guess I should HATE this book, and VOMIT all over the floor. After all, this is a COOKBOOK about how to EAT bugs.

So am I? Nupe. I say: Three cheers for David George Gordon and his Eat-a-bug Cookbook! Two, three, many Vietnams for the Arthropoda! EAT THEM BEFORE THEY MULTIPLY!

Warning: if you are *really*, clinically afraid of insects, spiders or scorpios, please *don't* buy this book. It contains color photos of locusts, dragonflies, scorpios, waterbugs and centipedes served on a dinner table...

PS. David G. actually doesn't eat the tarantula at the book cover. That's Doris, his pet!

Recommended? Well, if more people would be enthomophages, perhaps the world would be a BETTER PLACE.

Just leave the swallow-tails and hawkmoths alone, willya.

:D

Ever since I brought Gordon's "Crispy Crickets" to my work, my popularity has skyrocketed. I didn't even get fired for using the customer's kitchen to cook the crickets.
