It's really too bad we don't have any corpus of Aztec recipes
to work with.  Speaking of which...this is something I've been
meaning to mention on the list. I actually purchased two
copies of the Aztec Herbal that was recently published. I've
been meaning to review that for people.

There are no extant recipes in any translation of Platina or
its source manuscripts that I know of that contain insects.
However, I do have an entymologist's paper on insect and
grub recipes. And he's in the SCA somewhere...hmmm..in
Australia, if I recall correctly. I'll see if I can dig it up and
send it to you.
