Escargots

Escargots/Escargot A La Bourguignonne, Paris

The slimy but savory reason why I love Paris. For the sweet reason, please click here.

Escargot (AKA edible snails) is a popular French gourmet food–an appetizer that I never miss whenever I dine at French restaurants or in France. I just love them with parsley butter or prepared A La Bourguignonne… (more picture after the jump)

The soft texture of the snails and their woodsy flavor just go so well with the garlicky parsley butter mixture. They are simply delicious and irresistible!

Yum.

    I have never tasted escargots before, would love to try them some days. By the way, are they cooked using live snails or frozen or canned snails? Do you know?

    Never tasted escargots. Do they taste anything like our local siput? I saw some similar shells – dad collect sea shells, but not sure if they are escargots’s!
    I need some siput now!!!

    In Penang we can only get balitong in some coffee shop stalls. The one along MacAlister Road is nice. That’s the only type of snail available here.
