In 2007, Jeff and I visited Paris and had an amazing dinner of mussels (forgot the name of the restaurant, though. oops!) Recently, I’ve been really craving the same dish…don’t ask me why. It’s now 5 years later. Yesterday we finally bit the bullet and tried to re-create the dish ourselves with a very easy recipe I found on ( It came out ok — I think I overcooked the sauce, and added chicken broth at the end which made it too watery — but Jeff liked it! And we didn’t get food poisoning (very important). Next time I make it, I really want the dish to be more flavorful, so we can toss it with linguine.
