Comments
I'm not a purist when it comes to fixing these. It's actually much easier to use specially made ceramic escargot plates that have indentations for snails and butter. Not as charming as the shells but a lot easier to clean-up.

I love these critters. Did you know that one of the snail's favorite foods is artichokes? Almost a complete meal!
