Pascal Aussignac shares an enchanting mussels eclade recipe. Explaining the inspiration behind the dish, he says: "Just near La Rochelle, near Ile de Re (South West France), is the home of a classic recipe called Escalade (Eclade). This is traditionally cooked on the beach or in the forest. A large quantity of mussels are placed into a huge dish and then covered with dry pine needles, which are then set on fire. The mussels cook for a couple of minutes from the heat of the pine fire." This recipe allows you to cook it at home and uses fresh pine needles to extract a more intense flavour.
