I recently contacted Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern (“Bizarre Foods”) regarding the 13-year recurrence of a Cicada invasion in Tennessee, and specifically how I should prepare these rare delicacies. His response is below my video:

The cicada tacos sound delish! I hope this helps!

Recently, I’ve been working on the newest season of Bizarre Foods, which airs Tuesday nights at 9pm E/P. It’s been a busy year so far, and I’ve tried to spend every free moment with my family! It’s amazing how much your life can change in such a short period of time.

Again, thanks for taking the time to write us, we appreciate your feedback.
