Spring is here. The end of the Mussel season, for wild foraged Mussels, draws ever nearer. Farmed mussels will be around all year. I will be turning my attention to other things. The cockles and mussels I had last week were very nice.
Mussels Cooked in good cider and bacon, very simple, very nice. Thatcher’s Katy cider was this time. Cider made with the Katy Apple only.
I also cooked a Mussel Pilau, Gordon Ramsay’s recipe, as expected excellent results. ‘Great Escape’ (India) is the book, it’s well worth buying. On a spice note, there are excellent dishes in the latest Jamie magazine. In fact the magazine has lots of god stuff in it. It’s also worth buying.
