Fresh From Origin
Escargot is a French term meaning “edible snail” and refers to any number of snail species eaten worldwide. High in protein, they have been enjoyed since prehistoric times, with Romans even considering them a food reserved for the elite. Today, most snails are cooked with herbs and a broth or wine before being served in their shells, though the kinds of herbs and sauces vary from country to country. Or, you could just enjoy a nice cup of tea, no real snails (or jade) needed.
