    The Flying Chef's Note:

    We went out to eat right after Christmas and ate at one of our favourite hotels that do a Sunday brunch. I tried this mussel dish that they served in little espresso cups that was totally gorgeous. I told others in our party that they had to try them and everyone agreed that they were gorgeous. I tried to recreate them the other night as appetisers and they got the same response from all around the table that they were really good. I thought I had got it pretty close to the ones we tried at the brunch. I filled little ramekins with the mixture and garnished a plat with some salad greens and served a bread roll on the side and it made for a wonderful appetiser. They would also be great served at a party in little espresso cups like the hotel, I fell in love with the idea and plan to try it this way at our next big gathering.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #55* OHHH ! This was so sophisticated yummy ! I prepared the recipe as listed, but served for the 2 of us as a light main course. Used the entire bag of mussels, which were done in just 5 minutes. Had a crusty baguette to soak up the scrumptious broth, and salad with olives, red peppers and capers. Will do this again for company. Thanks for posting, Flying Chef.
