Snails and Seeds

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 1 January 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture.

I think someone once said that the cure for a new years hangover is to suck down some sea snails with a palm seed chaser - so I happen to have some here, fresh from the Kumasi market, for your pleasure.
