Burgundy escargots (snails) may not appeal to you at first glance but chances are, you will change your mind after tasting this typically French delicacy. Sauté in butter with shallots, add some broth and mushrooms, let simmer and finish off with liquid cream and garlic. Serve in small bowls with chopped parsley. We also recommend our recipe for escargot beignets.

Escal, founded in Alsace 35 years ago, is dedicated to French food specialties such as escargots.

    Brings back a vivid Paris memory

    Posted by Jack on 15th Oct 2017

    One evening not long after I arrived in Paris for a 3-year stay, several of my new French friends introduced me to escargot. Somewhat reluctant at first, I realized I was dining with those who had grown up with French cooking and wanted me to also experience it. "In order to fully appreciate escargot, you must accompany it with a glass of a good dry white wine," was one admonition. "And use lots of bread to soak up every drop of the garlic/butter sauce," was another. Following their advice, I timidly sampled it at first and to my surprise, discovered a wonderfully new, different taste. That evening's repas at a simple restaurant on a Paris side street began a lifetime of an appreciation of French cuisine that added so much more depth to my life.
