Dan Hernandez: The way that steams up looks beautiful.
Carla: Okay, now she’s melting the butter so we can better flavors for the wine because remember that we’re going to cook it with wine.
Dan Hernandez: Okay.
Carla: So, we have to wait for the butter to melt.
Dan Hernandez: Which won't take very long.
Carla: No. So now, the flour is going in. You can see it’s getting more body. Now, we’re adding the sour cream. I love sour cream.
Dan Hernandez: So, you’re going to eat some of these mussels with me?
Carla: Yes, I will. Now, we have to take out the mussels from the shell. Meanwhile, the soup is cooking. Now, we have to add the juice of the mussel. Remember that it’s the white wine.
Dan Hernandez: So, it’s kind of a mixture of the white wine and the juice that was inside the mussels.
Carla: Exactly, that’s what she said.
Dan Hernandez: Okay, we just mix in the—
Carla: Now, we have to add the mustard and the curry Remember the curry, it’s a condiment. It will give a special flavor to the cream. In fact, this dish is going to be served on July 26 for a wedding in Adobe Guadalupe. So, Martha is practicing also.
First of all, we have to set the mussels.
Dan Hernandez: You just kind of stack them all there if you place it.
Carla: Yes. You make a decoration.
Dan Hernandez: What I like about this dish is everything is local. The mussels come from the bay of Ensenada local.
Carla: From the Ocean Pacific, exactly.
Dan Hernandez: And all the vegetables and everything come locally.
Dan Hernandez: So, red bell peppers and we have some parsley. She’s going to add on top of that. And she has explained earlier that she really likes parsley because it’s a really strong flavor.
Carla: Exactly. That’s what we need because we were cooking with wine, so we have to have the same flavor, strong flavor.
Dan Hernandez: Strong flavor and then our soup.
Carla: Yes. And we have to go around the mussel.
Dan Hernandez: Not to knock it over or anything, that’s beautiful.
