Snail farmer Blandine Usseglio is taking us to Bellecombe today to talk about her snail farm and their journey to our mountains!

Heliculturist is the right term to define the profession of snail breeder, as is Blandine Usseglio. Based in the village of Bellecombe, at the entrance to Savoie, she breeds no less than 500,000 snails each year and it is thanks to her that our chefs can take up a new challenge. The Bellecombe snails will reach the ski slopes and on the plates of La Folie Douce restaurants.
