Henri Maire Wild Burgundy Snails for Sale (French Escargot)

2 dozen large

Wild Burgundy Snails are a timeless French delicacy. The finest purveyor in Paris, La Maison de l’Escargot, has been satisfying the most discriminating palates in France since 1894.

Whether in three-star Michelin-starred restaurants like Paris’ Taillevent, Chez Lasserre, or Alain Ducasse’s Grande Cascade, Helix Pomatia Linne snails have graced the finest tables in France.

Similarly, consumers who frequent La Maison de l’Escargot’s shop in the 15th or the fashionable right-bank shops of Galeries Lafayette Gourmet serve only the best in their homes.

The formula is quite simple, frankly. As with all gastronomic delicacies, French Escargots exhibit varying levels of quality. La Maison’s snails have maintained an unwavering reputation for incomparable products amid the demands of the culinary capital of the world, because they start with purely wild Burgundy snails - Helix Pomatia Linne - delivered live.

These savory delights from Potironne Company are then hand-sorted by size, washed, and cooked in an aromatic bouillon according to the same ancestral standards used in 1894.

Health Benefits of French Escargots:
Snails are good for you. This is an example of how flavor and nutrition go together.

100 grams of snail contain 119 milligrams of eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA - a long-chain omega-3 fatty acid usually found in seafood. They say an average intake of 250 milligrams a day of this kind of fatty acid may lower your risk of heart disease.

A serving of French Escargots contains 382 milligrams of potassium but only 70 mg of sodium -- which means they are perfect for a low-sodium diet.

Snails provide 3.5 mg of iron, or nearly 20% of the daily recommended value. The iron is also in the heme form, which is easier for our bodies to absorb. Other nutrients include Vitamin B12, selenium, vitamin E, phosphorus, and magnesium.

These French Escargots also contain a glycoprotein, which is believed to have cancer-fighting properties.

And let's not forget that they taste great - especially nestled in their shells with a little butter and lots of garlic!

Wild Burgundy Snails of Henri Maire are produced by Potironne Company, which is owned and operated by a professional chef trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.

PLEASE NOTE: These cans are prone to denting. On arrival or shipping to you. 

From the USDA

Great Escargot
Very flavorful. I order these for my middle school french students, cook them in the shell with a simple snail butter, and they are delicious every time.

So glad I ordered enough for seconds.
Their escargot were plump, clean and savory. So glad I ordered enough for seconds. My son and I truly "pigged out". A real threat. My thanks to CHEFSHOP.COM WILD BURGUNDY SNAILS are delicious.
