Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects book image

Tao Xiuzeng, a worker at the Silk Factory #1 in the city of Suzhou, describes her favorite recipe for silkworms as she pulls the silkworm cocoons from boiling water, threads the fine silk filament onto a reel, and then tosses away the rest of the pupae when the 1000 yards or more of silk is wound off each one. Occasionally she brings silk worm pupae home to eat, first drying them in the oven, then stir-frying them with ginger, onion, rice wine, and garlic, Suzhou, China. Her daughter is afraid of them, she says. (Man Eating Bugs page 90 Bottom)
