    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
