I have never tried an escargot and never intend to but it is quite fascinating to see these enormous buckets filled to the brim. 10,000 tonnes of these Moroccan molluscs are harvested each year. Most are exported to Spain but here in Marrakech they are are a very popular street food and barrows serving them in a broth are found on many corners. They are much loved by the locals and in Rabat there is even a home delivery service - probably goes at a snail's pace - haha !!!!!!! If you are brave enough to try then you will get a big scoop of snails ladled out of a huge cooking pot. You remove the snail from the shell with a tooth pick then drink the accompanying broth, which is often is spicy. No garlic butter.
