Chef David Gordon Cooking at The Lawrence Hall of Science THIS Saturday (Feb 7)!

For those who around the Bay Area this weekend, make sure to check this event out!

David George Gordon is a writer and traveling insect chef and lecturer who is known for cooking up tasty dishes. He has made appearances all over the US including the Smithsonian Institution, and on programs such as Late Night with Conan O'Brien. He is also the author of a number of books, including his most popular Eat-a-bug Cookbook. Here's the info taken from the LHS site (see link below). Should be fun. See you there!

Lunch with a Crunch: Cooking with Bug Chef David GordonBug Chef
DATE: Saturday, February 7
TIMES: 12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m. & 2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m.
Program runs 45 - 60 min

Touch, see, and taste bugs of all varieties. Bug Chef David Gordon will demonstrate how to prepare bug-infused recipes from his book The Eat a Bug Cookbook.

A grasshopper’s body is 60 percent protein. That’s twice the percentage in chicken or beef. You might re-evaluate your own diet when you learn some of Gordon’s fun facts and practical advice on obtaining and preparing crickets, mealworms, and other bug delicacies. He will also share facts about bug-eating cultures from around the world. You’ll laugh out loud, squirm uncomfortably, and—maybe—lick your chops.

“Lunch with a Crunch” is included in museum admission.
