Snail Food

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:50 pm on 10 July 2009

Many of New Zealand's top chefs will tell you that gourmet snails are delicious. The very thought of a plateful of helix aspersa might throw you into a state of"shell-shock", but you will never know the truth until you've tried them! For the past three years Silver Trail Snails in Hawkes Bay has been supplying hand harvested gourmet snails right across the country, much to the delight of foodies and restaurant owners.
