At least, that’s the message at the new Pestaurant at the Good Food & Wine Show, taking place at the CTICC from Thursday to Sunday, May 29 to June 1. Do you have the heart and stomach for savoury treats like cricket crostini, crispy mealworms and roasted locust canapés? Or, for those with a sweeter tooth, how about chocolate covered ants and scorpion lollipops? Some primitive tribes survive by eating insects and, now today’s trendy, fun-loving set are getting into them too. Pestaurants have created quite a buzz – no pun intended – and leading pest control companies like Rentokil view the trend with more than a whirr of anticipation, because the pestaurant’s increasing popularity will help make insect farms more prevalent too.
