Can Holiday: National Escargot Day – May 24


Origin

Unknown.  Escargot is the French word for snail.  Escargot also refers to the French dish of cooked land snails.  This appetizer is considered a delicacy and is served at finer restaurants.

How to Celebrate

The only way I can think of to celebrate National Escargot Day is to order some and eat them at a restaurant.  I suppose you could also find some in your garden or local park and cook your own.  I hear they are good with butter.  If you eat them without any type of butter or sauce, you are looking at a low fat, high protein treat.  I don’t know about you, but I am not ready to eat “Gary”.
