This series from Smithsonian explores the worldwide art of cooking and consuming insects. Despite North Americans’ squeamishness around eating bugs, insects are consumed by 30 percent of the world’s population. They’ve only slowly started making their way onto North American plates as a healthy, protein-rich and sustainable culinary alternative to other meats.

Host Haley Chamberlain Nelson is a biologist and self-proclaimed foodie. Each episode will follow her as she walks viewers through the natural history of one particular critter, and then cook up a dish featuring that episode’s star insect with the help of one of the series’ expert chefs.
