NATIONAL ESCARGOT DAY – May 24

National Escargot Day May 24

NATIONAL ESCARGOT DAY

National Escargot Day is observed each year on May 24th.  This day is in honor of the famous French dish of cooked land snails. Escargot is enjoyed by many. However, it is an acquired taste.  It is usually served as an appetizer in French restaurants.
 Escargot {es.kar.go} is the French word for snail.

The dish of Escargot is usually prepared by removing the land snails from their shells, cooking them with garlic, butter and wine. They are then placed back into their shells with the sauce for serving.    The dish is served with a special fork and tong for easier dining.

                                                Escargot are high in protein and low in fat (without the butter).
