French white wine from Bordeaux, Riesling wine
Mussels from the French Atlantic or Channel regions, known as “moules de bouchot”, grow on spikes on the coastal areas. They are in season from July to January. The larger type, Zeeland mussels, from the Netherlands are good too and are in season from July to mid-April. If you use Zeeland mussels, allow a few more minutes to cook as these shellfish are larger.
Most mussels are now farm-raised, so they’re easier to clean. You should still take time to rinse them under cold running water, and be sure to remove any beards.
