Herald Food Writer Bugs Out for Dinner

Fri, 2014-04-11 16:21

Between the three of us, a small plate is piled high with the grasshopper bodies.

They have been roasted, salted and flavoured with some spicy chipotle, but they are also clearly identifiable as insects with an exoskeleton and, in the case of many, including the first one I grab, little eyes.

South Korea is the world's 12th largest economy, as well as a global leader in the manufacture of automobiles and electronics. Despite these successes however, South Korea's economy does face key issues.

Tanya Graber, a resident of Switzerland, researched fashion retailer Aldo on the Internet before her vacation to New York City.
