At L’Escargotiere we have a passion for snails.
We deal only in the finest quality snails, direct from our base deep amid the beautiful Forest of Bowland in rural Lancashire.
Our customers expect the best and we operate a year-round service to a range of eating establishments, including superior restaurants, prestigious hotels and gastro pubs, along with Oriental takeaways … not forgetting, of course, domestic kitchens.
Our fresh Helix Aspersa Muller snails and Helix Aspersa Maxima snails are cleansed to the highest standard to free them from all impurities and then cooked for two hours prior to being despatched to customers for simmering in a recipe of their choice and enjoying.
We also offer delicious, oven ready and vacuum packed Burgundy snails in shells with garlic and parsley butter – delivered direct to your kitchen/home, complete with storage/freezing/ cooking instructions.
It's a fact!
Snails, for eating, were brought to the United States (California) in the 1850s. Now, American restaurants serve about ONE BILLION snails annually!
