A special treat is on the menu of Papillon Restaurant in The Village this Saturday: Dutch mussels, flown in still dripping seawater and with the fresh, salty smell of one of Holland's best export products still clinging to them. Mid July is the time when the tastiest, best mussels are cut in the south of Holland, at 'de Zeeuwse kust' and Papillon is gearing up for a true mussel feast.
Papillon's chef will be preparing the mussels in the time-proven, classical way is with all the trimmings: boiled and steeped in French white wine with a garnish of fresh vegetables like finely cut onions, celery, parsley and black, freshly ground pepper and thyme. These traditional mussels are served with French bread, a salad and a choice of potatoes and various sauces...
Mussels are fantastically healthy: they contain hardly any cholesterol at all, are rich in vitamins and good fatty acids. The "Zeeuwse Mosselen" are world famous: they are tasty and chewy. At Papillon guests are served 1 kilo of mussels with all the trimmings for the price of $45.-
