Info

Two villagers prepare a dish made of sago grubs (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, the larvae of Capricorn beetles), and sago flour wrapped in sago palm leaves. The packets are then roasted in the fire to prepare for eating, in Sawa Village, Irian Jaya, Indonesia. The resulting dish is like a cooked pastry, with a chewy, slightly sweet crust and the grubs taste like fishy bacon.
