Students had an amazing time and tons of fun. Students cheered the competitors on. The competitors ate and ate without stopping. We had great reactions from them when they really disliked one of the foods.
In Fish Cheeks, the main character, Amy, is embarrassed to have the boy she likes over for dinner because of the different foods they eat. I wanted students to understand first-hand what these foods are and how they taste so that they could connect with the character and story.
Congratulations to the three winners who ate the entire bowl first! They earned 400 LE bucks. All competitors earned 100 LE bucks for taking the plunge and trying something new.
