Beignets
These fluffy, light-weight beignets — or fritters, as we say in English — make a perfect party snack. Whether piping hot or at room temperature, they are fabulous enjoyed as finger food, dipped in an accompanying ravigote sauce. The French-inspired ravigote is really a cross between an aioli and a tartar sauce — in this instance freshened up with shallots and fresh chervil.For the sparkling wine in this recipe, we generally use Chandon Brut Classic, but any dry bubbly will suffice. The wine not destined for the batter will serve as an excellent libation for you and your guests. - Jeff MorganAdapted from the "Domaine Chandon Cookbook" by Jeff Morgan.

Beignet
Like many delicious treats, this preparation takes a bit of time and planning. You can speed up the process of proofing the dough if you leave the dough covered at room temperature for an hour or so, instead of letting it rest in the refrigerator overnight.

Crab Beignets
Down-home, honest cooking gets a bit of a gourmet flair in this appetizer recipe. A bit of beer in the batter never hurts, and we use a touch of Abita Amber to thicken the batter slightly and give it extra flavor. Click here to see Mardi Gras: The Feast Before the Fast.
