This recipe comes from Rick’s classic French Odyssey book and features on the menu at our Beer & Mussel festival at The Cornish Arms this month.

Rick says: “There was a time, long ago, when a bowl of moules marinière and a glass of Muscadet, in Brittany, was to me simply the most exotic thing. You couldn’t get mussels in Britain unless you picked them yourself off the rocks. Every time I cook this, I think of the past.”

Join us at The Cornish Arms for our popular Beer & Mussel festival over the weekend of 16th-18th March. You can look forward to freshly cooked mussels, over 30 beers and ciders to sample, live music and cookery demos, and even Six Nations rugby on the big screens.
