    Clams and cognac are an unusual combination. Using local crème fraiche, probably the best I have ever tasted, this dish turned out to be really yummy!

    Serves 4

    PREPARATION:

    • 1

      Rinse and scrub the mussels. Discard the mussels that do not close when you tap them.

    • 2

      Slice the garlic and chop the shallots. Sauté the onion and mussels in butter in a large pot. Add the wine and let the mussels cook under lid for about 2-3 minutes on high heat. Shake the pot a few times during cooking so that all the mussels open.

    • 3

      Add the crème fraiche and XO Cognac and bring it to a boil again. Season the sauce with chopped herbs, salt and pepper.

    • 4

      Serve the mussels in deep bowls with hearty sourdough bread.
