Used to order escargot, but they are sort of an acquired taste, and cost a fortune...since they weren't doing much for me, I backed off, and since I moved East, and find the horrible little creatures in the garden, have declined to eat any more...

I have unknowingly eaten things in Greek restaurants that I would sooner have not been told exactly what I just consumed, "Greek Delicacy" or not...and expect that I am living in a happy life where I don't necessarily know whats in the Chinese Food...

Okay, the "weird ones"?

(Seal) "flipper pie" (sort of like really greasy, loose muscled pork)

"Fiddleheads"...(a type of east coast Artic fern...don't try this!)

Musk-ox, caribou, moose, antelope, deer, bear, all of which taste just fine, provided you know the characteristics of the meat and have an appreciation how to cook it...

Just about every bird you could ever hunt, done just about every way you could cook it...

Cactus, dandelions, pigweed (heads only!)

Headcheese (if you can recall or dig back to my "recipe")

Fish "tongues" and "cheeks" (get a big enough fish, the "cheeks" are the very best part!)

And I'd eat it all again, given I never had to "remember" the Army "LRRP's (Long Range Ration Packs) that were dehydrated whatevers, where you added water, and used "body heat" to "cook" it...British Army field rations, or the US Army's "stuff" ...or the Cdn Army RP4's that were older than I was...

I've never seen snails for sale thought.. Might just have to take a trip to France to pick up a few dozen. Any one want to join me?

I am up to it if you pay. :!:
