Eating scorpions

Today I went to the Hilton Hotel for the Masterchefs of Shanghai Cooking Class. It was fascinating to watch but more on that later.

Chatting with Fiona Donnelly from The Courier-Mail the conversation moved onto eating odd things and the deep fried scorpions I by passed in Beijing came to mind.

According to those who tried them, they were rather crunchy and not unpleasant. I didn't hear if they had any side effects from eating them.

So if you ever wondered what deep fried scorpions look like - here they are!
