National Escargot Day

Let’s Go Out and Eat Some Snails

Escargot is a tasty appetizer made with land snails cooked in butter or wine. While the dish most likely originated in Ancient Roman times, escargot is usually associated with French cuisine. In fact, the French consume around 40,000 metric tons of snails each year!  Although escargot usually involves a very rich sauce, the snails themselves are actually quite good for you. The edible varieties are high in protein and low in fat.  If you’ve never tasted escargot, National Escargot Day May 24th is a great reason to give them a try! Bon appétit!
