Back in December we had a gorgeous couchsurfer stay with us. She wanted to cook us a traditional Catalan dish for supper. Luckily (for us) it was raining during her visit (not so lucky for the snails).

She collected the creatures, purged them, and cooked up this delicious dish which we enjoyed with bread.

Snails, I do admit, are fiddly to eat and require a bit of dexterity to remove from their shells. However, I was pretty pleased at how resourceful we were to enjoy very ‘local’, international cuisine .
