An old English dish dating back to the 15th century, froise (or fraize) is a batter-like mixture, which was probably originally cooked in the hot fat that dripped from a spit-roasted joint. It is a tasty economical recipe, delicious served with mushrooms, lightly cooked in a little lemon juice flavoured with black pepper and grilled tomatoes.
