The Frog in the Pot

The Frog in the Pot

Published 11 Dec 2018 by Chris Botha

Chris Botha, Group Managing Director of Park Advertising says that the advertising industry is remaining stagnant in some areas and that this will negatively impact us all

A famously made meal in the beautiful country of France is “ Cuisses de Grenouilles” or Frog’s Legs. Seasoned in flour and then sautéed in butter and olive oil – it apparently tastes quite delicious. So I have only been told.

I however am a little more interested in the bit that happens before we start crumbing Kermit’s legs. The bit where he pegs, and loses his…pegs… to some French chef. Ooh la la.
