Handbags (The sad, the bad and the ugly. Non-productive stuff here.)
I have not eaten them in France, but I have had them, unwittingly, in Hong Kong.
Was out to Dim Sum with a Chinese friend, who only told me what I had been eating after the event.
Did not find them in any way revolting, just a little rubbery!
As a Dim Sum item, they were deep-fried in a batter. I guess this is different from the French concoction cooked with garlic.
Isn't it odd, what we eat/don't eat according to which side of a twenty mile strip of water we live.
