    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    These little aphrodisiacs are drowning in a perfectly herbed cream sauce tucked inside a pastry bowl. Romantic and attractive - perfect for Valentine's Day or a romantic evening. The snails can also be simply served with a warm baguette instead of in the puff pastry shells. The best snails for this dish are the vineyard snail (Helix Pomatia) or the "White Snail" (Helix Lucorum, but other varieties will work as well. MAKE AHEAD: Recipe can be made 1 hour in advance and gently reheated. WINE: A white Burgundy will match the richness of the creamy sauce in this dish. Such as a Meursault 2002 Chartron& Trebuchet or the Meursault-Perrieres 2001 Louis Latour, both are good pairings. A nice Sauvignon Blanc with depth, such as Lucien Crochet Sancerre Cuvee Prestige 1994 is an excellent choice if using Pernod. Recipe adapted from Burgundy Classics by Chantal Leroux.
