Snail Caviar

Caviar and snails – two of France’s most loved delicacies come together with the release of the first-of-its-kind snail caviar by De Jaeger, a snail farm specializing in this exotic delicacy. 50 grams retails for US$ 115, a steep price justified by the complex, costly and time-consuming process by which they are produced.

Being the first in the world to produce snail caviar shell-less and unpasteurized, the farm - founded by two former snail farmers - spent nearly four years perfecting the production and harvesting process, resulting in tiny, smooth cream-colored pearls that reportedly burst on the tongue with subtle autumn and woody flavors.
