Yesterday, we gave some insect pasta to a TV presenter. It was fun - she came in knowing nothing except that she would be trying something unusual, and she liked it. (wasp larvae pasta, left)
Then we served a pizza topped with giant hornets and grasshoppers, and the whole insect thing became pretty obvious :)
I don't know what they were expecting and whether it will make for good TV or not, but it was good to be able to talk about the importance of insects as an environmentally sustainable, traditional and healthy protein source to someone who was interested - and to make people laugh/smile along the way!
But perhaps the best bit was when the cameras had gone and she said she wanted to try the hornet liquor :)
