Les moules sont arrivées!


“Mussels arrived!”
Mussels are very appreciated by Belgian
 and Luxembourgian gourmands. 
The season for mussels is from September till April.
Or as people say, the months which contain “R” in
their name (it works in several languages!).
Traditionally it is accompanied by “Belgian fries”. 

Bon appetit!

  1. Oh, yum! Ahhh, mussels cooked in butter with lots of garlic and a bit of parsley. Mouthwatering photos. I like the fritz too. I still remember the really good mussels I had a loooooong time ago on the coast of Croatia (at Limski zaljev – Limski fjord – in Istria).

  2. It's funny because here in Florida we eat oysters during months which contain an “R”! I love mussels too. They are also good steamed with capers.

  4. The human heart is a muscle. My heart muscle just won't let me eat this kind of mussels. I've not tried them, but…

    I would, however, chow down on those Belgian fries. Or Belgian waffles. 🙂

    I guess I ain't a “gourmand.” I've been called a goofball, tho.

    If I haven't said it before I really like your header – what a glorious paean to autumn!

    Hope you are off to a good week!

  5. I can't say whether I like them or not, because I'm too chicken to try them. The fries look lovely though. 🙂

  10. Ahhhhh! J'en veux!
    C'est cruel de me mettre ainsi l'eau à la bouche! C'est trop tard pour aller en acheter! Grrr!
    Tant pis, on va encore manger des nouilles avec des oignons et des poivrons émincés et dorés, et des petits dès de jambon, le tout mélangé à un peu de crème fraîche et une poignée de persil et de poivre! Et puis, du comté râpé! Plein plein plein! Voilà! Et un bon verre de vin rouge!
    Bon, j'ai vraiment très faim maintenant! J'y vais;o)
