Escargot is a dish of cooked land snails, usually served as an appetizer in France and in French restaurants. Not all species of land snail are equally edible, and many are too small to make it worthwhile to prepare and cook them. In France, the species Helix pomatia is most often eaten. The "petit-gris" Helix aspersa is also eaten, as is Helix lucorum.
