3- If someone offers you percebes, order them! Goose barnacles are a local delicacy and can't be found anywhere else in the world.

Percebes are extremely expensive  - you can also find them in Bordeaux, where they're called "Pouce-Pieds." Also, you may not want to hear this, but they're farming them now in Oregon, and you can buy them by mail.

I first had pouce pieds in Paris 20 years ago and have searched for them ever since. Portugal and Spain have them in fish markets and restaurants especially in coastal restaurants . I had heard they were available by mail from Oregon but you would want them

fresh not frozen.
