Is that a cockroach between your molars or are you just happy to see me?
Move over Food Network. The Smithsonian Channel is starting their own cooking show highlighting the deliciousness of insects. Bug Bites will be a series of short cooking videos designed to make eating bugs more appealing. The executive producer of the segments said, “The idea behind Bug Bites was to expand our audience’s awareness of something that, to many of the world’s cultures, is actually quite common – eating insects.”
What really goes on behind the scenes in a show about edible bug delights? Only @HaleyChamberlain22 can answer that. She's a nature-loving, world-exploring biologist, and she's totally unafraid to try new things, which might explain her role as host of Bug Bites. Head over to her profile today for some unscripted captures!
The five-part series starts streaming Monday on SmithsonianChannel.com. You’ll see how to properly prepare a tarantula for dinner and get the right ingredients for cricket pizza. Yummy.
