Conversations at Keeton: Insects as the Meat of the Future

Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 7:00pm to 8:00pm

William T. Keeton House, G70
4 Forest Park Lane, Ithaca, NY

Marcel Dicke makes an appetizing case for adding insects to everyone's diet. His message to squeamish chefs and foodies: delicacies like locusts and caterpillars compete with meat in flavor, nutrition and eco-friendliness.

Marcel Dicke wants us to reconsider our relationship with insects, promoting bugs as a tasty -- and ecologically sound -- alternative to meat in an increasingly hungry world.
