You might know Angelina Jolie as an award-winning actress, director and humanitarian, but it seems the mother-of-six is also an adventurous chef.

And while the most experimental of cooks might dabble with a tarte flambée, soufflé or hasselback potatoes once in a while, it appears Jolie likes to flex her gastronomical talents by cooking insects for her children.

Yes, really.

During her trip to Cambodia, where she is currently promoting her project First They Killed My Father, which details the atrocities in the country during the Khmer Rouge regime in the Seventies, the actress was joined by BBC journalist Yalda Hakim and her children for a traditional Cambodian family dinner, which involved the actress cooking up spiders and scorpions.

Showing her eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne how to 'take the fangs out' of the spiders, Jolie can be seen pulling apart the legs of the critter before admitting she hasn't always been educated in the way of insect cooking.

'Crickets — you start with crickets. Crickets and a beer, and then you kind of move up to tarantulas,' she joked.

'It's actually really good, the flavour,' she added, before Knox warns his sister, 10-year-old Shiloh, the insects taste like 'dry chips ... like flavourless chips'.

Sounds delicious...

The actress' cooking demonstration comes a day after she opened up about her divorce from Brad Pitt to BBC's World News.

'We are a family and we will always be a family, and we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it,' she told the news network.

Now, we've heard of eating Ben & Jerry's ice cream to get over a heartbreak but never a spider.

We think we'll stick to the ice cream.
