Looks simple though, but must be very interesting and tasty.

Brother, I liked your post very much. Thanks so much for a great post.

I love snails: here in Italy they are really frequent ad a dish and I like them. I have to tell you that I like the sea snails and the field snails. Two different tastes but both good.
The snails that you suggest are very similar to sea ones. My grandmother cooked them with some pork (bacon) to increase the taste.
