Eat Like a Local in Barcelona - Snails

December 12, 2011

snails in Barcelona Catalan restaurant. Foodie fun photo!

One of the great advantages of having local friends in Barcelona who are "foodies" is we get to eat fabulous food  at great prices and learn more about the food and culture of Spain and Catalan cuisine. They speak both Spanish and Catalan which helps immensely in Barcelona.

These snails are called "Cargols a la llauna" and taste quite different than the escargot that one eats in France and they are served in a very different way as well. Mozart ate her first snails as escargot in a fancy restaurant in France when she was 5 and we began our world travel, so gobbling these up with her Spanish best friend came naturally to her.

After 6 years on non-stop travel, we're home for the holidays at the beach in sunny California. Since I am dealing with travel health issues, taking precious time for family and world schooling,( PLUS I know how busy all of you are in this hectic holiday season), I'll be mostly writing short photo posts until we return to tropical Asia in January. Fun for the photo enthusiast and arm chair traveler as well as some links for those who want to dig deeper. Happy Holidays!

haha! That's awesome.

Sometime the food conversations around here are awesome. A couple weeks ago we bought bamboo worms. We all gobbled them in five minutes, and I was wondering our sanity.
