The Curious Cat

I'm sure woodlouse is lovely but it is a hard psychological barrier to cross for many...you're brave and rewarded for it...I'm still not quite up to the mark on that one...and i think I'm pretty adventurous eating wise...


I would suggest buying one of those tiny battery-powered vacuum cleaners to help pick up your insects of choice without harming them.

Before cooking, allow them to purge their systems of droppings, by keeping them in a breathable container, without food, for several hours or a day.

Farming and harvesting insects is an age-old art. I've seen photos and designs for some pretty sophisticated snail farms, using special pits or jars to keep them contained.


I usually try most recipees I find on the tinter - but not yours!! The salad looks nice though and I'm a big fan of wild garlic.

Hmm i don't know but i think it's the thought of "eating insects" is kinda disturbing..

But woodlice aren't an insect, they're a crustacean. They breathe through gills!

As a person that doesn't care for shellfish, I think I wouldn't care for woodlice either. But for those that do, I have to ask: If lobster, crab, woodlice (or whatever) are so good, then why do they have to be dipped into liquefied butter before you eat them?

C'mon, this recipe calls for twice the amount of butter as woodlice. Why not just have a big steaming bowl of woodlice without all the butter? Surely it would have to be healthier, right?


Ha! I have had this book on my shelf for a few years now, and have wondered about the woodlice on toast, never being brave enough to turn wonder into dinner. Thank you for doing it for me and saving me the experience...I am in awe.

I personally and I would eat a bug because I see very unpleasant because you do not know where he went and stuff! if they give the same protein that animals usually eat, because if there would be no other choice I would do, but not because they look rich!

Hey Kevin, we very much appreciate the sentiment, but the rumors of our death are somewhat exaggerated. You won't miss ANY of the good writing you enjoyed in Book World (and we hope to keep using you, too!). In the DC area, we'll keep running a full range of book reviews and book features (they'll just be a lot easier to find), and folks like you who read us online won't notice any change. So, please, please: keep us bookmarked and keep reading. Many thanks.


Where I live, I would be more afraid of environmental toxins ingested by the woodlice than I would of eating the woodlice themselves. I would be happy to try the recipe, but only sharing with someone that ate them regularly.

If I can get up the courage I might just try this. I've always found those little woodlice cute in a bizarre kind of way.

By the way that whole eating spiders in your sleep thing is a crock of shit.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field. Very good blog!

I think that everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? what if you were to write a killer post title? I ain't saying your content is not solid., however suppose you added a title that grabbed people's attention? I mean HUNTER-GATHERING: wild & fresh food: Why not eat insects? Potted Woodlice.... is kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.
