Anyone for beetle dip, ant tacos, cricket fried rice? No? That doesn't surprise researchers from the University of London’s School of Advanced Study (SAS). Their blunt advice to those worried about dwindling food supplies is simple. Don't make a meal of the insect ingredients - you'll just put people off. Instead, simply produce brilliant dishes that no one can resist and let the tastes do the talking.
