    Pokey in San Antonio, TX's Note:

    This is not just a meal, it's an evening event to be savored over several hours with family and friends. While stationed in Germany near the French border, we used to drive across to a little mom and pop place that served only frog legs. They were small, served in a shallow soup bowl, covered with sauce, and a plate of sliced French bread for dipping. They would bring 1/2 your order at a time, so the sauce would not get cold before you finished. No eating utensils were provided; just bowls of warm water with lemon slices for dipping fingers in. We would spend the entire evening eating, dipping, and sipping. I couldn't get the old man to give me his recipe, this is as close as I can get. Note: if you can’t find the Calvados, use any good French brandy.
