October 20 @ 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Caterpillar canapes, anyone?

Fried Green Tomatoes with Tomato Hornworms
YUM! Fried green tomatoes topped with Tomato Hornworms, from the Eat A Bug Cookbook

 

Join the San Antonio Botanical Garden and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service for an entomophagy expedition and learn about the eating of insects as food. Small bite insect-based food samples and family activities—including Cricket Races, Painting with Cochineal, and Face Painting—will be FREE with admission.

For those who want to sink their teeth into four chef demonstrated recipes featuring creepy crawlers, two ticketed events will take place at 10:30 AM and 12 PM–$25 per adult, $10 per child.

Ticketed program features insect eating evangelist Robert Nathan Allen, founder of Little Herds, entomologist Molly Keck and horticulturist David Rodriguez, both of Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service.

Menu forthcoming, but trust it will be memorable and healthy. Bring the kids!
