Overcome culinary fear, read bestsellers at Little Elm Public Library
How many people does it take to eat a box of crickets? At Tuesday’s food fear factor it took about eight. Other items on the menu included fortune cookies, astronaut cinnamon apple wedges, potted meat, baby food, smoked oysters, sardines in hot sauce, prepared horseradish, goat cheese, pickled okra, pickled pig’s feet, anchovies, and dried larvae.
