A new Dutch cookbook aims to get foodies thinking about insects as a valuable source of nutrition. Filled with dozens of recipes like grasshopper chap tjoy and cupcakes filled with mealworms, the book contains everything you need to know about cooking with insects - where to buy them, which ones are edible, and how to store and prepare them. More than 1,900 species of insects are eaten around the world, mainly in Africa and Asia, but most in the West still turn up their noses at the idea of eating bugs.
