Creepy crawlies on the menu in Edinburgh this March
Date Posted: 31/01/13
Edinburgh is packed full of excellent restaurants for those on city breaks in the Scottish capital to enjoy.
But if you're feeling brave and you want to try something a little different while staying in hotels in Edinburgh this March, head to the Edinburgh International Science Festival, where a host creepy crawlies will be on the menu.
Running for two weeks from March 23rd, this year's festival will include a special Eating Aliens and The Adaptation Diet event, where visitors will be able to sample a menu of edible insects and invasive species, the BBC reports.
But if the idea of scoffing mealworm cakes, crickets and spiders doesn't appeal, there will be plenty else to do and see at the festival.
Highlights include workshops and scientific trails at the National Museum of Scotland and a Malaysian jungle-themed expedition at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.
"For two weeks, the city becomes the perfect melting pot for ideas," Amanda Tyndall, deputy director of the Edinburgh International Science Festival, told the news provider, "and we invite audiences to join our futuristic adventures as we explore the promise, potential, peril or pitfalls of life in the 21st century and how science can shape our future."
