Twofer: # 8 - Red & WIC #139: Out of the Ordinary
8th December 2012

Twofer: # 8 - Red & WIC #139: Out of the Ordinary

My reasoning for this posting:
It is out of the ordinary to be forbidden to collect snails
and snails are very popular as a Christmas Dinner starter, at least in France!

My apologies for the lack of a link to the forum, it simply will not register.....?

I do love my snails......too bad you can't take them from here. Garlic and cheese on top are my way of eating them.

Interesting tradition for Christmas, not for me though :)

Thanks for the warning ....... I shan't touch a single escargot!

Great capture!

With foraging for wild foods all the rage, I suppose they have to try and protect some of it.
I think snails are highly over rated :-)

They certainly want their Woods to remain undisturbed! Never tried Escargots…..

I would love to see the reaction on the faces of
most Anglais at Christmas lunch if you set before
them a plate of snails to start the feast......

(Is that what the Haddens will enjoy.....?)

Funny sign! :)

Great find and capture. They seem to feel strongly about protecting nature.
