great post Grisell

just though you guys should just be aware of this: ... -v0lz.html

although - yes he ate a raw slug - but please don't dismiss this:

NSW Health says animals including slugs and snails can carry a range of infections, including bacteria, viruses and parasites that may infect people.

please make sure you cook them properly!!!

as far as the taste.. I like squid.. but hate mussels...
I tried snails on a trip to french Polynesia, in garlic butter...

All I can say is rubbery boogies do not agree with my palette!

Int he interest of keeping and open mind....I would try them again though. (maybe)


Dogs in the UK may contract lung flukes and other parasites from eating raw snails and slugs. I don't think, though, that snails prepared as André suggested present any threat except deliciousness! Properly cooked snails should be perfectly safe.

Agreed. Two hours' cooking will kill all bacteria, parasites etc. It's no different than fish.

I have a simple taste - I'm always satisfied with the best.
