It's Foodie Friday! How About a Giant Snail?




Friday, June 18, 2010
I eat conch and I eat escargot, so I've been trying to wrap my mind around whether or not I could eat the giant sea whelk (think snail) that is the subject of this Travel Channel video and is the norm in Phuket, Thailand.  Maybe if I didn't know what it was.  (I said maybe.)  How about you?  Are you adventurous with your food?
Here's an interesting Thai cultural food fact:  After a meal is over, there is no such thing as dispensing with leftovers. Throwing food away enrages the Thai Goddess of Rice Mae Po-Sop, a female deity who watches over the people, ensuring everyone has enough to eat.  Many Thai believe that bad luck or even widespread famine may then ensue.
