Mussels and fries

I just discovered La Buena Vida, the good life, and I’m smitten with Nicole Franzen’s photography & cooking.  This mussels and fries look delicious and I bet they taste the same. What you’ll need: 2 pounds of mussels fresh fennel bulb 2 cloves of garlic 2 shallots 6 oz of a Belgian style ale or wheat beer sea salt & pepper
