Beurre d'escargot

Beurre d'escargot

Beurre d'escargot is the typically French flavoured butter added to snails before they go into the oven.

In principal, this a simple mixture of butter, chopped parsley and garlic, but here is a more sophisticated gastronomic version with a flavour that simply oozes French savoir-faire.
