Salute to French Frog Legs

Though the consumption of frogs’ legs is a well-established, organized and widespread enough tradition to justify it being termed an institution, the French are not daily consumers (in spite of what some English people might think), and eating them is considered a special treat, usually taking place in a restaurant and limited to the months of Spring. And it is not, in fact, the legs, but their fleshy upper part, les cuisses, the thighs which are consumed.
