Austin-based Mohammed Ashour is on a mission to help consumers get over the “ick” factor of eating insects, and to embrace bugs as a sustainable source of protein. How?

At Esca Bona, Ashour explained why bugs should be a big part of the good-food future, and why this emerging food trend really has legs.
