The Snail Cookbook

The Snail Cookbook.    Recipes from both sides of the Pyrenees.

'The Snail Cookbook' gives the complete 'how to' of snail cookery: the entire process.   That is, all the necessary information on collecting, fasting, cleaning and cooking snails.   Nothing is left out, it tells all; the husbandry advice and recipes, along with their accompanying sauces, mayonnaises, alioli and butter based fillings.   This know-how will arm adventurous cooks and gardeners with all they need to know before taking the culinary step.   The recipes, many of them for the common British garden snail - Helix Aspersa - come from both sides of the Pyrenees.   Each recipe has been tried and tested by the author and each one written about from first hand experience.   The instructions are clear and unambiguous, and the photography accurately shows how the end result should appear.     read on, catch the snails, and start cooking.

Amazon 5 star review from a French lady:...
I have always felt stuck with the same old garlic sauce recipe and wanted to get ideas of how to cook snails differently.   I read these recipes and was amazed and surprised that escargots do not have to be cooked in the standard way I am used to!!   Being French, it would not have occurred to me to change the recipe... I was surprised with the care the author has taken.   It seems a lot of experience has been put into it.   I definitely recommend others to try these recipes as they have given me an insight into a different way of cooking with snails.   Hope there will be a follow up...    End of review...
