Okay, I was a bit scared of this recipe...never had snails before. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. I think the texture of the mushrooms and the texture of the snails helped me overcome my feelings. Ended up enjoying this very much.....even reheated the 2/3 cup that was leftover for lunch the next day. Got my snails at Joe Pattie's Seafood's Amangiari's Specialty Store. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.
