If you’ve ever wondered exactly how best to deep fry a scorpion, or make a taco out of wax worms, Daniella Martin is your woman. Not only are insects scrumptious, says the host of Girl Meets Bug, but our six-legged friends have a much lighter environmental footprint than livestock. And don’t worry about variety: the UN estimates over 1,000 species of edible insects. Daniella tells us how to do some basic insect prep, and even eats a wax worm during the show. “Tastes like a cross between a chanterelle mushroom and a pine nut.”
