David George Gordon, author of the revised and updated edition of Eat-A-Bug Cookbook gets a nod to his book by the New York Times.

David George Gordon, author of the revised and updated edition of Eat-A-Bug Cookbook (Ten Speed Press, July 2013) is thrilled to announce a nod to his book in the Guide to the Best Cookbooks of 2013 by William Grimes, a New York Times food writer.

This recognition is among a list of other notable publication reviews for his Eat-a-Bug Cookbook. Publisher’s Weekly placed Gordon’s cookbook in ninth place on its Ten Weirdest Cookbooks list in 2010. Abe Books gave the Eat-a-Bug Cookbook its number three slot on its World’s Top Ten Weirdest cookbooks list three years ago. Internet bookseller Abe Books rankings were shared nationwide by the Associated Press.

“It’s great to see my cookbook, which was first published in 1998, getting some overdue recognition,” says Gordon, dubbed ‘The Bug Chef.’ “This past year, the UN released a report stating that, to fight world hunger and lessen our impacts on the environment, people should start eating farmed insects,” he notes. “It’s nice to say I was 15 years ahead of the UN on that.”

To share his appreciation for delicacies such as Scorpion Scaloppine and Cockroach ala King, Gordon travels across the nation, giving cooking classes and demonstrations. For media inquiries contact Diane at Inspired Media info(at)inspiredmc(dot)com.
