Edible Author Daniella MartInsects They’re what’s for dinner Can you imagine a world in which that simple statement is not only true but in fact an unremarkable part of daily life Daniella Martin entomophagist and blogger canIn this rollicking excursion into the world of edible insects Martin takes us to the front lines of the next big trend in the global food movement and shows us how insects just might be the key to solving world hunger Along the way we sample moth larvae tacos at the Don B. Yes that’s right this is a book about eating insects entomophagy if we’re being fancy And not only does it carry a very important message to a world in food crisis it’s also a delightful read Like my very favorite nonfiction such as Donovan Hohn’s Moby Duck for instance it combines many different genres history travel nature food and environmental politics plus a little bit of memoir thrown in – all delivered with a lighthearted self deprecating touchSo why eat bugs plus bees beetles spiders grasshoppers and so on• Insects are the largest animal biomass on earth and raising them – even on factory farming levels – is markedly clean and efficient There are over seven billion people on this earth who need feeding but increasing the scale of industrial farming is no solution; this would only accelerate the rise in greenhouse gases Martin gives a great illustration of the problem in Chapter One when she imagines what would happen if McDonald’s had to give every customer the material impact of their food too So along with that burger you’d get four pounds of manure a thousand gallons of filthy water a gallon of carbon emissions and a nice helping of methane gas Insects on the other hand have minimal byproducts; a similar serving size would produce half a pound of castings excreta and ten gallons of cloudy water• People around the world especially in Asia Africa and South America have been eating insects for millennia And before that many of our primate ancestors such as tarsiers were also primarily insectivorous Bug eating may well be the true “Paleo diet”• Insects are high in protein iron essential fatty acids and other vitamins Crickets have than three times the calcium of ground beef; soldier fly larvae contain than six times the iron of a comparable serving of chicken• And according to Daniella Martin insects taste pretty darn good too Her favorite dish is wax moth larvae tacos but she also especially recommends bees wasps and bamboo worms One of her signature recipes is a fig goat cheese and grasshopper amuse bouche she calls her “Circle of Life Canapé” Most of the time though it seems insects are just served fried Pretty much anything tastes good when fried so this makes sense The other way you’re likely to find them is toasted and ground up into flour to provide nutritious bulkOf course some bugs are an acuired taste I can’t uite imagine the taste of a giant water bug which Martin describes as “banana infused anchovies soaked in old perfume” And she does warn that if you have a shellfish allergy you likely won’t be able to eat insects either because of their close relation Similarly if you are allergic to bee stings don’t attempt to eat bees Some people are allergic to cockroaches too apparently – but how would you ever know before trying themMartin first learned about eating bugs while performing anthropological research in Mexico Over the course of this book she travels to New Orleans Denmark where she meets some of the masterminds behind Noma one of the most famous restaurants in the world Japan Thailand and Cambodia fried tarantula yumBut why eat bugs at all Why not just be vegetarian Well for one thing consuming milk and other dairy products buys into the meat machine anyway something has to be done with all those unwanted male calves produced by the dairy industry Why not veganism then I think many would contest Martin on this point but she argues that veganism is not a natural diet evolution considered Also modern day veganism reuires a lot of often expensive products that can’t be grown very sustainably like soy beans Agriculture is also limited in certain climates Whereas insects are out there for the taking or the farming in both the Western and the developing world and offer an intense burst of proteinSo how can we get people to put insects on the menu Even though Martin provides tips for raising your own crickets or mealworms at home I seriously doubt many people will take her up on the idea Nor am I likely to place a bulk order for creatures that are usually just reptile feed I think restaurants and TV chefs have to set the trend And at least for newbies disguising insects may well be the key to getting people to try them Whole fried cricket down the hatch Not so sure Ground up cricket in a peanut butter and chocolate protein bar Why not“We are running out of options and have exhausted our alternatives We need an idea with legs Insects have six of them” I must admit Martin has convinced me If you’ll excuse me I’m off to research the local availability of Chapul cricket granola barsDaniella’s website

Non fiction at its finestI enjoyed this book It reminded me of Michael Pollan's books which I love The author makes a compelling case for eating insects and she definitely changed my perceptions But what I loved most was her writing style It's just beautiful and I don't say that about much nonfiction Not only does she make a compelling case she does it in such a writerly way that's worth reading in and of itself My only suggestion was that the chapters seemed to lose focus at times jumping from story to story in a way that was sometimes jarring I think better paragraphing would have eliminated this as some of the sections could have been broken up a bit But that is nitpicky and it shouldn't stop you from buying It's definitely worth reading
