It’s especially romantic to cook for your lover on St Valentine’s Day if you’re not the regular cook. This bowl of loveliness is built for the purpose – easy, quick and layered with symbolic ingredients: shallots and garlic for a suitably Gallic base; saffron for some exotic finery; brown rice for long, slow energy release; chilli to light the fire and, well, mussels are just plain rude.
This deliciously crisp muscadet is a great match for mussels. Waitrose Muscadet 2007 de Sevre et Maine, Lois, France.
