By: Jordan Mecca

Entomophagy is the human consumption of insects and arachnids as food. A common practice across the globe, it has yet to become popular in the Western world – until now.

One U.S. trend of 2015 is the use of cricket flour as a food supplement. Cricket flour as well as roasted crickets and chapulines were recently provided to some local Athens restaurants and chocolatiers. Their task is to make a unique dish for the “Insects, Sustainable Foods, and You” banquet on Thursday.

One of those restaurants is Condor Chocolates.

The banquet, hosted by UGA Bug Dawgs, will be at the Georgia State Botanical Gardens from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24,  Find out more information on this free event.
