Blog: Wullocks, anyone?

Catherine Sleep | 1 July 2003

In Belgium this weekend for a college reunion, I was intrigued to see a sign advertising wullocks on a stall in the street in Bruges. I love trying new foods so naturally bought a cupful. Does anyone know what they are? They are some kind of seafood, rather like whelks but perhaps larger. They are rather chewy and were served in a very thin, well seasoned bouillon. Perhaps the wullock is some kind of sea snail most commonly found on the Belgian coast. If any of our Belgian readers know the English translation I’d love to hear from you.
