It is time to make vin aux noix about now, and the recent winds and rain have knocked a few immature walnuts off the trees. So when we saw these two guys strolling up the road, poking the undergrowth with a stick and collecting something, we thought it would be unripe walnuts they were after. Not a bit of it. Snails. These ones are the escargos de bourgogne, apparently, big and tasty, and they have been brought out by the rain. Yummy.
Didn't Rod Stewart record a song called "We are Snailing"?
