Catherine Lemekwana with a mopane worm stew she prepared for her family using dried mopane worms, onions, garlic, salt, and curry in her home in Soweto, (South West Township), Johannesberg, South Africa. The harvest of mopane worms is a major economic event in Botswana where whole families move into the countryside and set up camp in order to collect the worms. Dried mopane worms have three times the protein content of beef and can be stored for many months. Image from the book project Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects.
