Sommelier’s tip

 Petit Chablis

“Tempura snails are served as appetizers. The Petit Chablis is a really enjoyable wine that makes a perfect aperitif. It has a floral nose, with citrus notes giving way to white flowers such as lily, both forthright and airy. Its fresh minerality makes this a delicious Petit Chablis.
I recommend serving it at 10°C.”

Blanch the parsley and then plunge into iced water.Dry in a clean cloth, and squeeze out the green juice.
Place the juice in a bowl with the chopped garlic and flour and add iced water.
Mix to a creamy batter.Dip the snails in the batter and deep fry at 180°C (356°F) for around two minutes.
