Like many keen gardeners, mum-of-two Elmira regards the snail as her nemesis. But for Elmira the lack of love for the gastropod is largely as a result of having once eaten one – on purpose, we might add. Despite her open-mindedness when it comes to trying new cuisines, no other snails need worry. Although she admits to rarely spending much time in the kitchen, the Filipina is discerning enough to know that her seasoning of choice is salt, specifically of the Himalayan variety.
Fun fact: About the only thing you won’t find Elmira tackling in her garden is the pruning of tall trees – she hates heights.
