What are the origines of Escargots de Bourgogne?
The consumption of the snail dates back to the origins of humanity, as evidenced by the presence of shells in caves of prehistoric habitat. It was a popular dish among the Romans who ate them fried. Considered “impure” in the Middle Ages by the Church, its consumption tended to disappear. It becomes a food reserved for periods of scarcity. In Charente, in the 16th century, sailors embarked barrels containing snails in order to have a reserve of fresh food for the crossing.
Escargots are often said to taste like fish or chicken, with an earthy taste reminiscent of mushrooms. For the most part, however, the snail takes on the flavor of the butter or sauce with which it is cooked.
Take the snails out of their box, run them under hot water, drain them and then prepare them to your liking. We recommend to enjoy them with the famous recipe that bears the same name.
