Frogs

Although frogs of excellent quality are found in several locations throughout Croatia, the inhabitants of Lokve in Gorski kotar are renowned for their particular fondness for frogs. These are best towards the end of April, during the Žabarska noć (Night of Frogs) when the finest frog is “elected” and when some very specific dishes can be savoured, particularly “frogs a la Lokve”: frog legs stewed with snails and local wild mushrooms, served with boiled potatoes or polenta.
