Moules Frites is charming Belgian bistro food. It can also be a fun family meal where anything can be eaten with your fingers! Follow this recipe to make delicious Belgian-style mussels with deep fried potato wedges and if you want to make it completely Belgian, mayonnaise as a dip for the potato wedges.
A hot shelfish recipe found in “Carl Butlers Kokebok – Fortsettelsen” (Carl Butler’s Cook Book – The Continuance) published in 1991
Nordic cookbook history was written in 1974. That year a bunch of foodie friends published a cookbook that would become one of Scandinavia’s most popular, Carl Butler’s Cookbook. With folded corners, patches of pie dough, tomato and French mustard and an unmistakable scent of herbal spices and garlic it can be found in hundreds of thousands of Swedish, Finnish, Danish and Norwegian homes. The book put for the first time coq au vin, moussaka and paté on our tables.
For all Scandinavians who like me love this cook book it took 17 years before we could hurry to the book shops to buy the continuance. It was simply called “Carl Butlers Kokebok – Fortsettelsen” (Carl Butler’s Cook Book – The Continuance). This recipe is from that book – Ted
