    Post The Chef Cooking a Cicada Recipe for Every Palate

    The Chef Cooking a Cicada Recipe for Every Palate - From ceviche to caramel popcorn, Joseph Yoon is showing how Brood X can be a delicious part of your diet.

    The sun is setting in Princeton, New Jersey, and Joseph Yoon is plucking cicadas off the grave of Aaron Burr. Princeton Cemetery is the final resting place of the infamous politician who killed Alexander Hamilton. This May and June, it’s also been home to a group of Brood X cicadas. On this night, cicada nymphs crawl across 18th-century stone engravings, adults flutter from grave to grave, and empty, molted shells crunch underfoot. The cemetery is an apt location for the group: After living for 17 years underground as nymphs, Brood X cicadas emerge for a mere few weeks to mature, mate, lay eggs, and die.

    During this brief window, Yoon is on a mission to collect cicadas across their life stages. The insects’ destination? His kitchen. A professional chef, Yoon is a passionate advocate for incorporating insects into one’s diet. His company, Brooklyn Bugs, has provided insect feasts for museums, universities, and private events, with everything from tarantulas to grasshoppers to tobacco hornworms on the menu. He views Brood X, which appears in massively high numbers estimated at up to 1.4 million per acre in hotspots, as an exciting opportunity to show the breadth of insect-based cuisine.

    This would never go over at Joe and Marys in Brooklyn. Hell I would bet Carmine would still go there and get what he got rather than eat bugs like some savage from the Congo

    Nope. Bugs don't look like food to me. It took me a good fifty years before I would even eat shrimp because they look like bugs, but at least you can remove the shell. I actually like shrimp now. The only way that I'm eating insects is if there is nothing else to eat.

    In a survival situation the bugs are fair game. Not today.
