"Eat a Bug" Book Talk, with Insect Buffet

Author and naturalist David George Gordon, AKA The Bug Chef, gives an up-close and personal introduction to what many are calling the Food of the Future—edible insects. Following a 45-minute presentation where Gordon discusses the environmental and health benefits of a bug-based diet, The Bug Chef will host an edible insect buffet with delicacies such as cricket kabobs, wax moth flan, and patanga (grasshopper) pizza prepared by Seattle’s Café Racer.Admission to the talk is $5 at the door (FREE to members of the Burke Museum and Scarabs the Bug Society). The buffet may be enjoyed free with the purchase of The Eat-A-Bug Cookbook Revised: 40 Ways to Cook Crickets, Grasshoppers, Ants, Water Bugs, Spiders, Centipedes, and Their Kin, or with a $10 donation to Café Racer Love (a memorial fund for the victims of the Cafe Racer shooting in May 2012).
