“We Mexicans eat bugs, but we don’t eat horses. We have many recipes for some of them. Escamoles, which are eggs of these little ants—fried, they are amazing with a little bit of guacamole. And the worms—I’m salivating, they’re delicious. It’s all in the way they cook it, the little grasshoppers have a smokey flavor to them and it’s really good.They’re not that easy to find, they’re delicatessens … delicacies. My French is getting a little better, and my English is getting a lot worse.”
