    I haven’t Giusec.:) I personally don’t think its a big deal – just another protein source.

    Once I visited an African friend. He was very pleased as he had something special for dinner. And yes, dinner indeed was really nice. After dinner I wanted to put the plates in the kitchen. Guess what I found there. Right, a whole bunch of grasshoppers. I’m like: what is this ??? He responded with a huge grin on his face: well *this* is what you’ve been eating earlier on.

    At first I was like: YIKES. But I have to admit, I did taste really good. Reason I didn’t recognise my food as a collection of grasshoppers was they were wrapped in some kind of dough.

    Yes, grasshoppers can be found all over the world including perching on my Mum’s washing line in Manchester. This one (http://www.vanillasky.co.uk/photos/150903.html) very obligingly posed for me, even waiting patiently as I dashed inside to get my camera.

    He was too friendly to be fried!
