Strange ideas.......

It's strange, but there are many people, all over the world who have strongly pre-fixed ideas on the matter of food.
It appears that certain items are just 'to vomit over' - without having tasted them mainly, so it's all a question of appearance, not taste. You know - you've probably seen those TV Ads about smelly things and blindfolded people - well, it's much the same with this! Just take 5 minutes to read about it....!
In fact there are many things which are quite delicious but look quite revolting, or our imagination runs riot and we can't figure out how ANYBODY could touch, never mind cook and eat. Just the idea of those 'slimy' things jumping over our plates is too much! Actually they are delicious, tender as chicken but with a slightly fishy taste - A garlic butter (beurre maître d’hôtel) goes well with them and crusty bread dipped - what more could you want? (just a little, short video) and here are some words about these ingredients: 
Frog legs are popularly consumed in France and some parts of China. They are also popular in other parts of Europe and Asia.  The meat is normally extracted from a typical frog known as the edible frog. They are often mistaken for a chicken due to their mild flavor and appear like chicken wings. The frogs used for food preparation are commercially cultivated for the purpose. Unlike the chicken ,the frog flesh can twitch on heating due to the absence of a muscle called rigor mortis.

History of Frog Leg As a Food
According to historical anecdotes the Chinese were the first ones on Earth to eat the legs of frogs during the first century AD. It is believed that Aztecs were also fond of this food item. But there was no mention of this uncommon food ingredient until 12th century.  It is believed that some dish using the leg of frog was cooked around Catholic Church of France. It is believed that the French Catholic monks started the tradition of eating the leg part of the frog as a food.  Owing to the issue of increasing number of obese monks the church issued orders for the monks to stay away from the meats on certain days. The monks started eating frog legs by disguising it as a fish. The peasants followed the tradition and thus it became a national delicacy in France.'
Of course, nothing could be complete without these little babies.....(and of course they both go very well together.....
 If you think all this is too much, just reflect on the fact that shrimp, lobdter etc are actually necessary to clean the seabed and are effectively the 'rubbish bins' of nature - but we all eat  them....some more than others.
from grasshoppers over worms, pickled snakes in bottles, deadly fish from Japan - have a look in! 
Oh - by the way - "Bonne Appétit"
