“This is a WONDERFUL appetizer, especially when you want to “put on a splash” and impress your dinner guests. Don’t confuse these snails with the slugs you find in your garden. These type of snails are raised on snail farms and are absolutely delicious and safe to eat. Most supermarkets carry them in cans and also carry the empty shells that you use over and over again. For each person you will need oven proof snail serving plates, escargot tongs, and escargot forks (or cocktail forks), which can all be purchased at a gourmet shop. You will serve 6 snails per person. If you have any questions e-mail me:”
