This last weekend I attended a very memorable reunion of my high school graduating class. I attended a small and well-known Seattle “prep school” and was there back when it was still all boys, with a graduating class of only 60. We met at the spacious home of one of our classmates, not far from where I live in the Ballard neighborhood. Other than seeing many old friends, the highlight of the evening would have to have been the twenty pounds of “Honey Mussels” which were provided by our classmate, Gordon Jones, who now lives in British Columbia and is President of Inovative Aquaculture Products, Ltd. Gordon and his team spent almost ten years developing these truly magnificent mussels…more sweet and meaty than any others I have ever been served. The preparation was so simple…white wine, water, a tiny bit of garlic…and the results were worthy of the finest chef one could have asked for. The crummy part of this deal is that for now these superb shellfish are only available in Canada. Production is small and the crop is purchased by one wholesaler who sells them to fancy cafes and restaurants, mostly in British Columbia. But this is your alert: Do what you can to track these down! Ask your Canadian friends about them! When in Canada, ask the restaurants you visit if they know these oceanic treats! Here is their web site: http://www.honeymussels.com/ Hope all of you can enjoy them sometime soon.
Honey Mussels rule!
