Re: SnailsI've had them, just a couple, in Portugal, you've got to try everything once, washed down with Super Bock. Caracois they call them, tasted of olive oil, garlic, herbs. Nice bread to mop up.
Re: SnailsMy knowledge of Escargot is that if you want to cook them yourself get some advice from a French chef or cookbook first. Like mushrooms etc you need the right kind. Usually they are done in butter and garlic with herbs. I have had them many time but funnily enough never in France. I personally love them. Totally delish.
Re: SnailsI had some years ago, quite nice but really just taste of the garlic sauce.
