Are locusts the new shrimp?

That’s what Marcel Dicke, an entomologist and author of a new insect cookbook, told me. If you like bacon, Dicke says you may enjoy buffalo worms (which are not worms but larvae of the buffalo beetle). I got to dig into the world of insect-based cuisine for this new FastCompany story. One thing I found particularly interesting is that chefs can imbue insects with flavors based on what they’re fed — it’s a much easier process for insects than for other forms of protein.
