Brandy-flavoured bogong moth, a new bush-tucker sensation

Posted by waterweek on 17 October 2007

They were a scourge across NSW but bogong moths have become a tasty gourmet treat, reported The Daily telegraph (13/10/2007, p.3).

An aquired taste: As they swarmed on their spring migration from Queensland to the Blue Mountains, a cunning restaurateur has con­cocted a moth meal that was flying off the tables. Aussie tucker cafe Ironbark in Canberra was serving up a brandy-flavoured bogong moth frittata with boab root, sampled yesterday by The Daily Telegraph. The nutty-flavoured crunchy delicacy was cer­tainly an acquired taste.
