Have you ever eaten an insect? What do mealworms taste like? Do you know any songs about worms? On this episode of Time For Lunch we’re doing another episode about insects; but instead of focusing on the bugs that help feed us, we are exploring the world of edible insects. Hannah and Harry learn about raising and eating these creepy-crawly snacks from experts Wendy Lu McGill and David George Gordon (A.K.A. The Bug Chef). Plus, Maile Carpenter, author of Food Network Magazine’s “Big, Fun Kids Cookbook”, and her daughter Ellery, share some very tasty bug-themed recipes.
