The salty scent of the sea, the gentle breeze caressing your cheeks, a melody created by an orchestra of sea gulls complimenting the visuals of the endless beautiful turquoise waves spreading cross the white sparkling sand and reflecting against the bright sun. Fantasizing of the Mediterranean summer brings me fond memories of my Euro-trips which brought many food discoveries and new found appreciation for European food. One of my favorite romantic seaside delicacies discovered is the "Moules Marinières" or Sailor Style Mussels.
With covid-19 in the picture, traveling is out of the window. However, the aromas of this recipe will bring you straight to the Mediterranean coast without leaving the house. This dish is perfect for a date night or if you just want to treat yourself. A play on the classic Moules Marinières, this recipe has a kick of red pepper flakes and Japanese sake for a spicy but mellow umami touch.
A hearty soup to give you comfort on one of those days, this french onion soup is easy to make and satisfying. The onions slowly releases its juice while simmering and imparts a naturally sweetened base. Then we finished the soup by submerging pieces of baguettes and top it off with shredded mozzarella and Swiss cheese for a stringy and cheesy bite. It is best enjoyed with a couple pieces of freshly toasted baguette to soak up more of the cheesy delicious goodness and a refreshing salad to contrast the rich flavors of the soup.
