Reader contributor David ‘the Hat” Hammond has emerged as the media’s go-to guy for cuisine de cicada. So far he’s been quoted by the Associated Press and interviewed on LA’s KMX, and today he was featured on Good Morning America along with LTHer Catherine Lambrecht and A Cook’s Guide to Chicago author Marilyn Pocius. Watch the gang here chowing down on cicada maki, cicada tempura, and cicada-tinis, along with obligatory grimacing from Diane Sawyer in the face of food geek obsession.

Friday Hammond’s on WLS around 9 AM on Jerry Agar’s show; later he entertains a crew from Nippon TV.
