Quote of the Day

We came here especially to eat.. We began to gather them, and we filled a quarter of a sack. Since I was little I heard stories how they would eat these in Yemen, gather them in sacks and throw them into the oven, and I am waiting for that. I ate one small one a number of years ago when I was small, and it was actually tasty. It is like bisli. You cook it in an oven, and you eat it like nuts. It was the bisli of yesteryear. You twist off the head, pull the legs and wings off, and the rest you eat. 

  -- Meir Rena, Tel Aviv resident who went down south to catch locust to eat

  1. Bisli, eh? Would that be "falafel" or "pizza" flavor? ;-)
