Re: insects as food

The classic reference on insects as food is
Taylor, R. L. Butterflies in my Stomach (or: Insects in Human Nutrition).
Woodbridge Press Publishing Company, Santa Barbara, California. 1975.

For recipes, try Iowa State Entomology:

The University of Kentucky has a WEb site for children on bugs as food:
