Internationally famous novelist and renowned gourmet, Jason Schoonover, chose Bangkok for his Christmas Dinner. Jason went for traditional Thai food, in his own words:
“...we dug into Bangkok's Best - bugs! Nutty grasshoppers, crunchy crickets, meal worms, snappy scorpions and our favorite - mangda, or paddy beetles. They look like cockroaches but taste like sweet custard. Pass the cranberry sauce! Burp!”
Hopefully, Jason will be a trend setter and help in a revival of these culinary delights.
