Cooking mussels by covering them in a big pile of pine needles and setting it on fire. Cool method! Supposed to “adds to their brininess the fragrance of the forest floor”.
I dunno. Not a fan of pine flavor. Or forest floors. And am a big fan of the juice from mussels, which is totally lost. But it’s cool anyway.
BTW: they never show them actually picking them up and eating them. That part will remain a mystery
