Creepy, crawly edible bugs at Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory

If the kids are “bugging” you to take them someplace during March Break, how about BugFeast?

That’s where Chef Jeff Stewart of Creepy Crawly Cooking will serve up insects au honey at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory from March 13 to 22, offering a chance to sample delicious insect treats. These include honey fudge topped with roasted superworms, honey-mustard flavoured crispy crickets and honey crunch protein bars made with cricket flour.

“You’ll find they are surprisingly good – especially when covered in honey – and are high in protein and nutrients,” said Adrienne Brewster, conservatory executive director.

The chef, who is the associate dean of hospitality and tourism at Niagara College, has a true passion for entomophagy or the art of eating insects. There are 1,400 species of insects and arachnids that are edible and can provide a sustainable source of food.
