    I had snail once in my life, very salty and I didn't like it.

    Did you mean frog's legs?

    Escargot is one of my favorite things.

    But I've always wondered how hungry the first person must have been who cooked it up in some garlic and oil. :dunno:

    I've had snails and frog legs. Snails were pretty disappointing, they didn't really taste like much (it was gratine too, so the cheese entirely overpowered the snails). Frog legs were pretty tasty, and yeah, they taste like chicken.

    Pretty hungry.

    They were the same people who decided they could eat frogs. And they were starving at the time.

    Yes because in french it is " cuisse (lambs) de grenouille " and not " jambe (legs) de grenouille".
