Book - Eating Bugs for the Planet

Add to Wishlist

Part of the Aussie STEM Stars series which follow the real-life stories of some of Australia’s top scientists and inventors, chosen on the basis of their pioneering work. Themes explored include childhood, school, family, and formative experiences, what inspired them to pursue their chosen path, how they persevered in the face of challenges, and what they have contributed to science in Australia.

Eating Bugs for the Planet is about about Skye Blackburn-Lang who always wanted to be an entomologist. Her unusual childhood pets included ‘Fluffy’ the tarantula and ‘Woodstock’ a giant burrowing roach that blows kisses and has starred in video clips.

Skye followed her dream and studied bug science as well as food science at university. As Australia’s first farmer of edible insects, Skye and her trailblazing team, teach people that insects are an eco-friendly, and delicious, protein. 

Australia’s top chefs now use Skye’s ingredients, and the book includes recipes for her awesome Choc Raspberry Cricket Powder brownies, and Choc Chip Cricket Powder cookies.

Skye Blackburn-Lang is an entomologist and food scientist who has combined her two specialities and high energy entrepreneurial spirit to become a world leader in developing nutritious superfoods for a sustainable future from insects and their larvae – without the Yuck! factor.

A great book for teachers wanting to introduce the idea of insects as food to their curriculum.
