My final conclusion was that all the food I tried in France was either the best thing I ever ate, or the worst!  Cheesy

I still wonder how we can go from foie gras and quiche lorraine to escargots and andouillettes  Tongue

But escargots can be fun if they are hot enough... the butter is bubbling and the snails jump around! (Sadly, they weren't hot enough at Easter this year)

 Cheesy I like the pesto sauce but I was a little scared of the actual snails, so I just nibbled the sauce. I was also scared to try tete de veau! Most of the food was amazing, though.

Oh oh! I guess this could be the swap for me since I live in Belgium and go very often to France!

Bien sur!

It seems we have at least 2 Belgium fans, as well!  Smiley

snails in pesto/olive oil are GREAT.  i had them in a restaurant next to a castle, in Yvoire, maybe that's why.  i have not dared eat them here in USA.

PS: although i keep threatening to my students to have them try it... except the vegetarian girl, of course.  but i don't know how to find GOOD snails.

I used to love snails (and even frog legs) in garlic butter before I went vegetarian. My in-laws always prepare some (they're from Lorraine in France) at Christmas and since they don't want me to be left out, they give me garlic butter alone! I know it seems crazy but I looooove to dip crusty French bread in it... Smiley

I haven't signed up yet. I'm a bit scared my crafting skills can't compete with yours!

I'd happily send you some... but I'm not sure it would pass customs...

Garlic butter alone? eheh... Well, we all know that garlic butter is the only reason to eat escargots anyway...
(and I'm also from Lorraine)

As for your crafting skills... I obviously can't compete with some people, but I can still do things that are pretty nice, I'd say that's enough to participate! (Just sign up!  Wink)

I had snails in garlic butter in San Francisco and they were very good.

Escargots are one thing I've managed to avoid. I could eat crepes until the day I die, though. And a different one everyday; they're so versatile! Andouillette is downright scary. Not really a fan of any of the sausage, though.

Oh crepes are in the top like 3 of my favorites. EVER.

 I signed up for this swap because I spent the summer of 2000 in Paris as a nanny for an American family, and it was so much fun, but it has been awhile... hopefully I get paired up with someone with a good wist and descriptions since it has been so long, and it seems like you guys are up to date with the culture. At least I am versatile with what I can make, and I like making good quality things if that helps.
