Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Okay, I wouldn't really suggest you serve puppy dog tails. But a lot of people equate escargot with being just as yucky as the popular children's saying, believing that the scrumptious little snails are icky slimy buggers pulled out of garden soil. But trust me when I say that the delicious delicacies are no more or less "disgusting" than eating a lobster, shrimp or crab from its shell. And they taste just as yummy! They may be difficult to find, but if you can track them down — either fresh or in a can — we suggest this fabulous escargots a la bourguignonne recipe from Emeril Lagasse. Très chic.
