Skye Blackburn-Lang always wanted to be an entomologist. Her unusual childhood pets included ‘Fluffy’ the tarantula and ‘Woodstock’ a giant burrowing roach that blows kisses and has starred in video clips.

Skye followed her dream and studied bug science as well as food science at university. As Australia’s first farmer of edible insects, Skye and her trailblazing team, teach people that insects are an eco-friendly, and delicious, protein. Most of all, Skye loves inspiring the next generation to follow their passion to achieve their career dreams, like she has.

Australia’s top chefs now use Skye’s ingredients, and the book includes recipes for her awesome Choc Raspberry Cricket Powder brownies, and Choc Chip Cricket Powder cookies.
