This pâté tastes just like chicken, but it’s made from baby flies


#AFHN2014 – Making your Pat’e taste like Chicken, but what is it really made from – oh yes Insect Larvae !

Grist

How come caviar is SOOO COOL, yet baby flies lack the same foodie cachet? Icelandic design dude Búi Bjarmar Aðalsteinsson wants to change that with his insect larvae pâté. Aðalsteinsson has created The Fly Factory, a contraption to help restaurants harvest black soldier flies (Hermetia illucens). The larvae can then be used in a bevy of tasty recipes as a chicken substitute or in a kid-approved coconut-chocolate pudding.

As Aðalsteinsson told Dezeen:

“They taste like chicken,” he says. “There is no distinct taste. It depends on how you spice them and how you prepare them.”

Yum?
