marc dennis photoBlogger – Creative Footprint:

I created a blog for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting called Creative Footprint sponsored by WSKG, an upstate New York NPR/PBS affiliate. Creative Footprint is designed to facilitate connections, offer insight, create possibilities, and generate tangible networks for artists, craftspeople, gallerists, curators, writers, poets, performers, educators, institutions, collectors, musicians, and basically anyone interested in the creative process, encouraging a greater sense of community and appreciation of the arts and nature.

Insects Are Food

I founded and maintain Insects Are Food, an organization dedicated to educating and informing the public on entomophagy (the practice of eating insects) as a healthy nutritional sustainable food source.

I was interviewed about my interest in entomophagy (the eating of insects) as part of New Hampshire Public Radio's "Word of Mouth" show. Go to Word of Mouth for September 29th, 2010 and click the Listen button for that page. My interview starts 14:15 in. You can also jump directly to interview.

The Wall Street Journal article "Would You Like Flies With That? Bug Eaters Try to Get Some Buzz" covers my passion for educating and enlightening people on entomophagy. Click the interactive Video tab at the top of the page to watch a live interview of me titled "Bugs--They're What's for Dinner". The annotated Slideshow shows a smorgasbord of gourmet bug dishes including my famous waxworm fritters.
