The Löscher restaurant in Switzerland’s capital city, Bern, is now offering classes to instruct people how to cook with insects. YUCK!

Insects are a sustainable, protein-packed food source, and cultures around the world—from Central Africa to Asia and Latin America—eat the tiny critters.

Löscher’s manager, Andrea Staudacher, said “To enjoy the taste of bugs, we need to rethink our relationship with them. We associate prawns with food but not grasshoppers. However the two animals are very similar,”

Cookery students will learn how to cook items including muffins and falafel using house-bred weevils, or flour worms, and fried grasshoppers.

Löscher’s insect-based culinary course costs around $80, and is available for 20 participants.
