Dinner last night was so wonderful. I told myself I would try escargot and I did. If you're going to try escargot try it in France, right? I had no idea what to expect but I was surprised and delighted. Escargot is really no big deal. Really. You might expect a fishy taste even though they are not fish. But they tasted like the sea - a common description of fresh foods from the water. And they were bathed in garlic and olive oil and a small amount of what appeared to be a pesto. Even the "mouth feel" wasn't overwhelming. They had just a slight chew, nothing more. And let's not forget to dip our bread in that delicious olive oil. I also had duck confit with frites. That duck just fell apart. So tender. Sally had sea bass and shrimp in a vegetable ratatouille. She reported that every morsel was perfect.
