The story of Mussels starts with "the humble mussel, a shellfish so unassuming that the impact it had on the two of us was quite unexpected," as the authors -- the "Kilted Chef" Alain Bosse and his good friend "Mussel Mama" Linda Duncan -- of this book say. When these two met, they discovered they shared an identical passion: to get the word about this sensational seafood out to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible. This cookbook, Mussels, is the satisfying result. It includes 77 recipes for using mussels in every type of dish, from where you would expect them -- in appetizers, salads and mains -- to where they are a delightful, whimsical surprise -- in pickles, pies and cocktails. Mussel Strudel, anyone?
