Guess What I Just Ate (kind of like chicken)


Oddly it all started with a trip to Big Chubby Burger in Kensington.  After we had bellyfuls of burgers, mom and I took a stroll through the market; poking in some of the stores, especially the fruit and fish markets. We came across a quaint chocolate/candy store called The Chocolate Addict (185 Baldwin Ave.) Among its many fair we came across crickets and larvae. That’s right, crickets – insects that chirp at night and larvae – as in wormlike baby insects.  Technically my mom and I have a rule against eating baby animals, so we didn’t get the larvae but we did get the crickets. This is the result.

Hi, my name is Callum. Even though I am only 17 years old, I have been working on my palette and enjoy many foreign foods. I've been doing this blog for a a few years now, mostly for family-owned restaurants in Toronto. As I've gotten familiar with this whole blogging thing, I've started to add posts on other food related topics and not just do restaurant critiques. My interests include; space, astro-physics, Sci-Fi, dinosaurs and of course Food. I hope you enjoy my blog!

  1. OMG, I thought, “no way.” But I used to like the chocolate covered Ants and candied Scorpions, etc. I think you’re on to something… We could possibly solve world hunger by harvesting giant kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) off the west coast of North America and harvesting the massive tonnage of insect protein every year near the arctic circle. Just add taste.
