A British school was giving its students’ lunches an exotic boost Wednesday with unusual dishes including crocodile steaks, frogs' legs, wildebeest and zebra stew, local media reported.
Students at the Newline Learning Academy in Kent, southern England, are being served up a different dish every week in a project designed to expand their knowledge of food from foreign countries, The Kent Messenger reported.
The school’s catering manager Thierry Leroy, said, “Obviously this kind of meat is very expensive, so it’s just a taster not a full meal. We try to do something fun, to push the students’ curiosity and get them to try something new.”
The school principal Guy Hewett said, “Trying different foods can help to raise aspirations, in the same way as learning about different countries and getting qualifications.”
