Have you ever eaten snails?

23.5.12

Well, I know that in many countries it could be revolting. But it's customary in Mallorca (and the rest of Spain and France) to eat snails. And what's most, here we have an anual snails fair. My family and participate for 6 years I think, my father and uncle cook a lot of "fideuàs" with snails. It's similar to a paella, but with noodles and snails.
I have to say that I've never eaten a snail, I can't. But every year we have a lot of sales! People like it and returns every year only for eat our "fideuà"! 

Bueno, sé que en muchos países puede ser asqueroso. Pero es costumbre en Mallorca (y en el resto de españa y Francia) comer caracoles. Y lo que es más, aquí tenemos una feria anual del caracol. Mi familia y yo participamos hace 6 años creo, mi padre y mi tío cocinan un montón de fideuàs con caracoles. Es parecido a la paella, pero con fideos y caracoles.
Tengo que decir que nunca he comido un caracol, no puedo. Pero cada año tenemos un montón de ventas! A la gente le gusta y vuelve cada año solo para comer nuestra fideuà!




Also, in thar fair there were many local animal species!
Además en esta feria había un montón de especies de animales locales!
