It is on the occasion of a dinner in the honor of the Russian Tsar Alexander 1st, that the French sovereign ordered its Burgundian chef Antonin Carême, a new recipe. He had the idea of serving escargots stuffed with butter, garlic and parsley. The recipe is a success and fancy restaurants are selling it in the French capital.
