Did you know, that today is National Escargot Day? If ever there was a  holiday designed for us to celebrate this was it. We believe that the humble and delicious snail is worthy of more than just one day of celebrations, and they’re always a showcase and feature on our menu.

Here’s a little about them, and how they’re prepared.  Escargot de Bourgogne – Burgundy Snails Burgundy snails, called Escargots de Bourgogne in France, are prepared with garlic and parsley butter and are widely known as a refined French product. This traditional, flavourful Bourgogne gastronomic speciality will definitely surprise your palate!

Indeed, although not popular with Australian taste buds, this French recipe made from land snails is highly appreciated by gourmets throughout the world. Burgundy’s snails are nowadays one of the refined products from France in great demand and widely exported.

Considered to be one of the ambassadors of the French gastronomy, the traditional escargots are indeed more and more protected and in the Burgundy region, snail collecting is indeed strictly controlled.

Attention is also paid to the escargots cooking so that the taste and finesse of this rare product would be conserved. Many restaurants today offer Burgundy snails but cooks complement the refined French product with a fatty garlicky butter.

The traditional Bourgogne escargots are served warm in a “snail” plate, a typical small casserole
with 6 or 12 holes to arrange the snails with their garlic and parsley butter. In some gastronomic French restaurants, you may also find the Burgundy snails delivered in their shells, with a specific fork and snail tongs.

To celebrate, introduce perhaps this culinary delight to you for the first time or if you’re a lover already. We’ve a special offer available from now up until Saturday at The French Brasserie!
