Moules Marinière – a dish that might conjure up quintessential images of holidayers in France, fishing into a briny, bottomless pan with one hand and clutching a glass of crisp Chablis in the other. Not a dish you might consider eating at home? Think again. This dish is cheap and simple to put together, it’s also arguably more enjoyable to eat also from the comfort of your own dining table. This is one to get stuck into with sleeves rolled up and elbows on the table.
Nerd notes: Moules Marinière, otherwise know as Moules-Frites originated in Belgium. ‘Marinière’ means ‘like a sailor’, in other words, a rustic, fresh, filling meal that can be rustled up dockside after an expedition at sea…Or another routine less day of working from home.
