    Gorgeous. I hope we hear about the saffron vanilla sauce in more detail when you have time.

  2. Seriously.

    Make a stock with mussels.

    Then, the next day, strain it and simmer it with saffron and a vanilla bean pod.

    Reduce it to a glaze.

    Add some cream.

    Add TEN TABLESPOONS OF BUTTER! and whisk them in one at a time.

    Strain it.

    Run your immersion blender all up in it until it emulsifies.

    A pain in the butt, for sure.

    But glorious and heavenly.

    more to follow….
