Ja but of course the critical part of all this is not how it tastes but rather what it eats.  A hungry population of proles can likely be trained to eat anything, or rather we can process any kind of high protein matter to anything we want.  But we need to be able to supply the raw materials in enormous quantities at low cost and low environmental impact, or preferrably to environmental benefit.  We need to be able to program bugs to seek out and devour noxious weeds for instance, and leave the useful crops behind.  Then report to base to breed and be devoured.
