The Story: What do serious foodies do when cicadas invade Chicago – eat them, of course.
Behind the Story: Everyone is so grossed out by the fact that I actually ate that cicada sushi roll on camera. Truth be told, I think I wimped out by skipping the cicada on a stick.
Looking at this photo of a fully grown cicada, though, it does sound kind of disgusting… but when they’re younger there are no wings.
More Info: River Forest.com article on David Hammond’s love of cicada cuisine. Also, David is a regular on the excellent Chicago restaurant website/blog/forum/whatever… LTH Forum.
