One of the best escargot preparations I've ever had (I order them whenever I can, which may be once every year or two) was this asparagus mousse dotted with escargots and surrounded by a picket fence of alternating white and green asparagus tips.
I can only guess that those escargots did not come from a can. :D
You misunderstood. They would go with as in the other course.
I did go to a big dinner party for work and one of my coworkers very young wife was consuming mass quantities of snails but she didn't have ten foot long metal flake vinyl nails. Maybe she wasn't so buttery either. But she was definitely his trophy young blond.
