African Food Story
How did it start?
If I said to you bush tucker what is the first thing that comes into your mind bush tucker trials? Extreme eating! Eating crocodile penis, scorpion, cricket, ants and mealworm in I'm A Celebrity. It is true eat snails from the French menu and you are celebrated; eat African snails and wow that is gross. Media images of food are everywhere of what we should eat and it is not bush.
