Ooh La La: French Burgundy Escargot


One of the most divine delicacies in the world is escargot. Escargot is a cooked land snail that you’ll often find in France, Portugal and Spain. It’s often considered one of the dishes that epitomizes French cooking.


Burgundy escargots from Escal are canned for your convenience, plus they are tender and simple to prepare. This trusted brand has been bringing escargots to the world since 1976. Escargots were considered sacred thanks to ancient Greek mythology involving Venus carrying them away from Mount Olympus. Escargot has always represented French cooking at its finest, much thanks to Henry II, who was said to love escargots.
