Snail Caviar - the Jewels of our Farm
Chefs across Europe are already serving the highly-prized delicacy, which centuries ago starred in banquets for wealthy Romans, Egyptians and Greeks.
We have named them 'Escargot Pearls', as they have a pearl-like appearance, they are luxurious and add a glossy finish to a variety of dishes. A perfect autumnal addition to a menu, the Escargot Pearls marry up beautifully with beetroot, black pudding, beef, and many other protein dishes. Escargot Pearls are excellent in giving a dish that extra lift and dimension, with quite literally a burst of flavour on the palate!
These tiny eggs, which taste slightly earthy, foresty and have a mineral finish, can be marinated in herbs with a delicate taste. In the past they have been known as 'Pearls of Aphrodite' for their supposed aphrodisiac quality.
A luxury item with a price tag to match, as with all caviar it is a tedious process to produce just a few grammes. It is a labour of love, but once tried I am sure you will agree it is totally worth it.
Escargot Pearls are stunning used on canapés and can add a wonderful salt element to a dish. They not only look and taste fabulous, they create a fantastic talking point amongst diners and tasters alike.
Beetroot and apple salad with snail caviar canapés flew out when we provided tasters at the Artisan Market weekend. We made 600+ canapés and feedback was amazing! Our tasters' tastebuds "danced with delight" - it was incredible to see the hesitation on their faces turn to pure pleasure.
