Snails to be greeted respectfully...
Yes, respectfully, because they deserve it: they have obtained the national agri-food prize for women entrepreneurs, and this prize, in December 2008, was awarded at Paul Bocuse's house! So... respect!
A farm to visit slowly!
Yes, slowly, at a snail's pace! An unusual visit, certainly, but also highly educational! Because you will learn everything about the different phases of snail breeding, which, after hibernation, go through reproduction, egg laying, birth, and, of course, growth, which takes place in an outdoor park with a quite traditional food, cereals, alfalfa... happiness!
But, if it was simply a question of raising snails, it would be too easy! You have to prepare them. And this is where Maryse's recipes come in... Here is one that she makes available to visitors: you make a reduction of fresh cream, in which you incorporate a grated dry goat cheese. Add salt and pepper and the snails, which have been cooked in court-bouillon. Then, you present to the plate, or on a square of puff pastry... good appetite!
