Extracting the worm from its cocoon (Vietnam)

Nhộng Tằm worms are a delicacy in some parts of Vietnam, but I didn't get a change to try that for diner.­

Those are not Silkworms (Lepidoptera), but they produce a similar cocoon that is harvested by the tribe people in Northern Vietnam.­

Photos of edible insects, alive, raw and cooked, found on markets all around Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Laos).­

I tried most of them, and they are good indeed.­ Rosted crickets (my favorite) taste a bit like chocolate.­

Photos from of my 30-day trip around Vietnam in November 2005.­
