Out of the swamp and onto your plate: frogs are no strangers to the dining rooms of Croatia. In “Leaping into Croatia’s Frog Leg Tradition,” I explore the history and variety of frogs in Croatia’s gastronomy. Thanks to the wine-making tradition that has been going on since the Roman times in what is now Croatia, I include pairings with Croatia’s impressive but relatively unknown wines.
Sure, I’ve written about flavors before, but this is the first time I have written about flavours. The piece is my BBC Travel debut, and it has been converted from American English to British English. So, for the frog hunters out there, don’t forget to bring your flashlight — er, I mean torch.
