The association between mussels and french fries is a Belgian specialty, but it’s very widespread in France and we brought our own twist to the recipe. There are many ways to cook mussels, my favorite is the moules marinières, a recipe from the west of France where you cook the mussels in a white wine broth with shallots and parsley.
What to drink: A blond Belgian ale, or a white wine.
For dessert: A clafoutis, traditionally made with cherries but you can switch them for rhubarb.
