So I decided to tell my sister to get me some escargots. "Yuck," she said, but being a loving sister is going to order them. I am hoping they are here by Christmas. In any case, I have never cooked them before, and though I know the basic recipe of cooking them in the oven with herbs in the proper pan plate (which I also told her to get for a good price), I'd like some other suggestions. I had them once at a nice French place. I was thinking foie gras, but I have heard it takes some mastery, and I do not want to waste money one something I might ruin. Maybe when money is not so tight!
Don't ask me how to prepare them, but I have eaten snails before. Straight out of the shell with a toothpick. They were boiled in a spicy sauce and served at a buffet in southern China. Quite yummy!
