THE FROGS SOUP OF LEONARDO FROM VINCI
In the second book of the adventures of Iul, the little painter titled: "The new home of Iul", Raphael offers a recipe for the most unusual dinner: the soup of frogs. Iul finds out that the recipe was invented by the great Leonardo da Vinci. Raphael he met Leonardo when he went to Florence in 1504.
But this recipe was really invented by Leonardo?
Well yes. When he was a young man Leonardo opened an inn with his friend and fellow painter Sandro Botticelli, which he called: "The three frogs." His passion for cooking made him write many notes and strange recipes, including indeed, the soup of frogs.
Here are the ingredients to prepare it:
Clean up well the frogs and wet them with honey. Cook them in boiling water along with the carrot and a little cumin for about an hour then serve it.
Iul found it delicious and you have the courage to try it?
