here we go - escargot with garlic butter


Escargots à la Bourguignonne - whew thats a total mouthful in more ways than one. I was so excited when I saw the box from Black Star Gourmet and the first thing that caught my eye was the lovely flash of green poking out of these special little mollusks, I almost tore right into them on the spot but it was only nine in the morning.


Terroirs d' Antan escargot are plump and tasty with the garlic butter not overwhelming and the lush freshness of the parsley being sustained from the first one until the last one. Excellent little bites.


These escargot were so enjoyable as an appetizer for two I can only imagine how decadent I would feel if I had all twelve.

Table Talk said...

We had a big snail problem at our home in California. I know it's not the same, but those little buggers kind of ruined Escargot for me....silly, I know.
Your photo sure does look good though!

Those shells are so pretty. I haven't had escargot in a while. They are so delicious.

That's why you just eat appetizers all day long; 9 am is perfect for escargots & Vino (Hey, wine's not just for breakfast anymore.

Jenn said...

I've never had escargot, but i think if it was made the way you had done it, then I'd give it a try.

I'm a pesco vegetarian but I am loving these! (I guess I no longer am pescatarian). I once had escargot at this one restaurant and oh my gosh, it tasted like mud toilet water (not that I have tried that before).

I'm sure this tastes divine!

Escargot are definitely one of my favorite things! Thanks for the tip - I look forward to trying them in the near future:)

Oh yum! Love escargot. Haven't had it in way too long!

Vickie said...

Christo, you're killing me! I love escargot and the parsly touch makes my mouth water. Yum!

Just telling it like it is said...

OMG you need to send me that pronto

Sweta said...

I've never tried snails-does it taste like shrimp? I remember someone mentioning that they tried "snail curry" and it was almost like eating shrimp!

Kitchen Butterfly said...

I've never had this type of snails.....see in Nigeria we get larger snails which we cook differently. Someday, in France....I'll give this a try!

Joanne said...

Escargot. Another food I've never had. You are expanding my palate exponentially these days.

Tangled Noodle said...

I can't even remember the last time I had escargot! [Sigh] After savoring these, I would even keep the shells . . .!

Bridgett said...

I've tried to do this so many times as they always look so appealing, but I can't get them down. Can't do it. The garlic butter was always divine, lol.

The Blonde Duck said...

I'm sorry-- I can't do snails.

lisaiscooking said...

Something I've never tasted but would like to--escargot. The look lovely!

Lea Ann said...

I dunno.

Kristen616 said...

I truly believe that I could eat escargots for breakfast, lunch and dinner. These look delicious...and now I'm craving them.

TavoLini said...

How pretty are those escargots! Nice presentation and they look really delicious. I haven't had escargot in years.

Andrea said...

Escargot one of my favorites!! One of the best ones I ever had was in Bogota Colombia at a French Restaurant there...Amazing!!! Luv your Blog!!!

Cynthia said...

Did your raw escargot look like these?

I have had escargot lots of times in Guyana but I somehow cannot bring myself to have these. The look big and scary and the other thing is that I find them feasting on each other.

Cynthia said...

Like Table Talk said, the African snails are a real problem for us here in B'dos and it kind of turned me off from escargot.
