I like escargo because of the garlic sauce, the meat itself is a bit pointless if high in protein and nutrients.

Frankly, when I first heard that Cantonese eat foetuses I didn't believe it. I still have trouble doing it now, but some in the know tell me it is a real and existing feature of  underground Lingnan culture.  ...

This must be the legacy left behind by those early Jewish immigrant who escaped the siege and destruction of Jerusalem by the Roman during 70 CE.
The historical records showed that there was extreme famine and
people there ate their own babies in order to survive!!
Guess SS has no trouble with this.

Escargot are a famous meal in french cuisine, however it is not often that frenchies eat it, as frogs, except for occasion like new year, it is not so common to find on french markets, certainly not so often than in the past.Most people dont know how to prepare it.  It is just famous for foreigner as a french restaurant must have, but, in fact, it's simple and not really representative, I think. When I have opportunity to eat, I dont miss it. there are species better than other: the "bourgogne" is better than the little grey.
The garlic sauce is used in other speciality, excellent too: the mussel. I never saw garlic-butter bread in france as it is common here in china bakery. Maybe a fashion.
