About the episode

Cooking with frogs

Ignoring all traces of political correctness, Cooking With frogs was entirely concerned with French cuisine. Not being native french speakers the show was mainly voiced like the English policeman in 'Allo 'Allo.

It was recorded in Langwith D block kitchen on the ground floor.

The closing titles featured Paul McCartney's shameful "Frog chorus".
