Think of a sformato as a little like a cross between a dense soufflé and a crustless quiche. The term literally means ‘unmoulded’ in Italian, which doesn’t sound half as romantic when you translate it. It can be made with all sorts of vegetables and makes a really impressive vegetarian main course.
Oh, absolutely! That is one quality that most people lack (but when I find it in another human, I'm instantly attracted and intrigued): The capacity to see value in smaller, and widely misunderstood, lifeforms. In other words, bugs/insects/arachnids are neat.
