Escargot – not as slimy as you might think
A topic of much debate and controversy in the food community – escargots, or snails as you might know them. Many feel ill at the thought of ingesting them, but escargots actually taste nothing like what you would expect, and in fact, taste purely of butter and garlic. This may surprise some, and while the thought of a snail being a French delicacy may still make you a little queasy, once you try these little delights at a French restaurant in Edinburgh, we think you’ll end up as a true snail convert. Escargot is commonly cooked with parsley or garlic butter, wine wine and in some French restaurants in Edinburgh, chicken stock. Intended as an appetiser with a glass of fine French wine, escargot is the most traditional of French appetisers, so why not give it a go? You might even be surprised.
