While we're on the topic of interesting food, I finally got to try snails. Or rather, snail. (Not that I was waiting on tenterhooks, but it was a goodly while ago they warned snails would be on the menu.) The night Friesens had snails for supper I was eating at the Scotts, but, eager that I should not miss out on the cultural experience, Lisa sent some rice, snails and sauce over for me to try.

The sauce was tasty, though it had a vaguely snail-like essence to it. The snails were not repellent but neither were they palatable. They didn't have much flavour, so the overwhelming impression was of rubbery gnurple.

I'll try anything once, I always say. After that I may get selective.
