Moules frites may have originated in Belgium but it is a serious classic in France and for good reason. Mussels and crispy fries are a perfect combination, accompanied by a Belgium beer or crisp dry white wine as the French do! A pot of classic moules marinière is fast food at its best and represents one of the most popular quintessential seaside meal along coastal towns in France. Join this class to learn how to make this easy and satisfying meal that celebrates the spirit of summer!
