When I was at school the mandatory school dinners were not something you looked forward too. Except on the rare occasion when we had Spam fritters, deep fried Spam in batter served up with chips and Heinz baked beans. The whispers confirming we were getting the fritters that day started at something like 11 o'clock and soon spread around the 2000 kids at Holland Park Comprehensive, my school at the time. When the lunch hour finally came around it was complete chaos in the dinner line. There were never any seconds, every Spam fritter was eaten and looked upon as a gift from the Gods. Delicious.
