Snail in boiled beef water. Wash it and cut it like I told you. Once boiled, pour some boiled beef water onto it, pass through a strainer the water, add some parsley leaves and black pepper, cook it until you're ready to put it into the shell. When about to serve it, put the boiled beef water with parsley and black pepper onto the shell, boil it, put it into a pan or a silver pot, and serve it to your lord.
