Foodie Friday First: Frog Legs

I tried my first Southern-style…

Frog legs: battered goodness (tastes like chicken–not really)

frog legs

It’s been a long time since I’ve had frog legs, and that was the Chinese version of them. I was really surprised at how tender the meat was (although it’s also slim pickings). It’s not quite like fried chicken, but it’s tastier in its own way. The nice thing is that being all battered up, they don’t really look like limbs.

Frog legs is also a French delicacy. I recently read FROG MUSIC by Emma Donoghue, author of the worldwide bestseller ROOM. I absolutely loved ROOM. FROG MUSIC is a historical book, featuring a French burlesque dancer named Blanche. There’s a unique friendship between her and Jenny, a catcher of frog legs. Donoghue still writes in an evocative way, but the subject material and tone of FROG MUSIC is totally different than her previous bestseller.

Have you read FROG MUSIC or tasted frog legs?
