"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
This is an excellent appetizer. Use fresh, not frozen mussels, and ask your fish vendor to de-beard them for you. They should be tight when you get them and discard any unopened ones.

Great with crusty bread or if you prefer you can serve as a meal over linguine. Serves 4
