  • About

Crapauds, also called mountain chickens, are a special type of frog found in Dominica and Montserrat. They are much larger than the usual type of frog and have a very delicate flavour. They are worth a trip to the islands, especially to Dominica which produces the most remarkable limes, whose juice, mixed with the local rum, makes a memorable punch for sipping while waiting for one’s crapauds.
