National Escargot Day


May 24 is National Escargot Day, an annual foodie holiday that celebrates, well, snails.

Enjoyed for centuries, escargot is often synonymous with French cuisine. It's estimated the French chow down on 40,000 metric TONS of snails annually! Typically eaten as an appetizer, escargot is low in fat and high in protein. According to iGourmet, there are over 100 different edible species but the most popular escargot are Helix Aspersa, Helix Pomatia and Achatine.

Bon appetit!
