Frogs’ legs hop to Israel


Frogs’ legs are now available to eat in Israel.

Tiv Tam, a leading Israeli importer, announced this week it has begun bringing in small quantities of the non-kosher French delicacy for a handful of gourmet restaurants in the Jewish state.

According to Yediot Achronot, one eatery, Chloelys in Ramat Gan, offers an appetizer of three pairs of frog’s legs or an entree of six. Price is by weight – around $15 per 100 grams.

“People are excited about us having frog’s legs,” Chloelys chef Victor Gluger told the newspaper. “But when the waiter asks if they’d like to order them, a lot of people get put off and say, ‘not today’.”
