A friend of my son's is a producer for a morning radio show at Fordham University, and she recently did a piece involving a Mexican chef in New York (I think) who fed her grasshopper tacos. I've just dropped her a note asking if she can get me his name.
Sources as in sources for insects, or preparation guides?
If the latter, there's always Calvin Schwabe's "Unmentionable Cuisine", which would sure have pretty detailed instructions...
I'll let you know if I hear anything from Brennan's friend.
