they weren't in their shells, just a small pile with sauce in the middle of a plate with a depression in the center. the snails must have been trimmed a bit since they were served that way. when i've had them in their shells either grilled or chinese style, you realized that you're essentially eating a little slug because of the antannae and such.

One of the treasured ingredients within french cuisine is the humble gizzard.
I was amazed to view an American Diner that specialized in this fragrant offal
I like snails but real men eat gizzards.

I don't know, but I'm sure glad they did!

Artichoke and Pea Ragout! one of my favorite springtime veggie dishes!

but in this weather, my mind is on Boeuf Bourguignon.

Interesting . I LOVE cauliflower cooked -- in whole bunches of ways, but really dislike it raw! Just another good example of "different strokes for different folks!"

I'm with you 100%! It seems no one eats plain cauliflower. It's always in a cheese sauce or some other collection of ingredients that mask the actual taste of the stuff.

I do eat it raw and plain, though I tend to like to put a little ranch on it too... Can't stand it cooked though.

I figure that the only way anyone would have tried Artichokes is by just throwing one on a fire and roasting it. I like them that way too. they must have been very hungry to try that.

I think people--early people, that is--probably starting eating a lot of things because they saw animals eating them first.

Must have been a Billy Goat eating a raw Artichoke. Nothing else could digest it.
