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! Grin

That's interesting. I might have to try some hot sauce after I do it the regular way. That would be interesting. Buffalo esgargot. Or some Cajun sauce. That's adding a New World French element to the old one!

Well, it wasn't escargots I ate, but it was snails. I guess the only difference is how they're prepared.

Yeah, the classic. I will do that first. I get like 50. I might order some more after Christmas. I think I am going to have my little niece, the red headed one in my avatar, eat them. It will be cute.  Cheesy
