I've seen the PEI mussels on several East Bay menus. It should be a good time of year for mussels locally, so I'm wondering whether this is merely a fashion thing or whether there's some problem with the local varieties.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
