Carla: Thank you for coming.
Male: And who’s that chef?
Carla: Martha Mariquez is our chef.
Male: Thank you. And what is that Martha be cooking up for us?
Carla: Martha is cooking tonight a mussel soup.
Male: And this is what it’s going to look like.
Male: It looks beautiful.
Carla: It is and delicious.
Male: Okay, well how do we get started Martha? So, right now she’s going to go ahead and add the mussels.
Carla: Yes, right now she has a pan ready on the stove. She has the wine and then she’s putting the mussels in it and she is going leave it.
Carla: Okay, she will leave it there until it’s boiling and the mussel will be open you know, until they open by themselves, yes.
Male: Okay, so now we’re going to make the sauce.
Carla: We are going to make the soup, la sopa.
Carla: Okay, so we will move this, remove it from the stew.
Carla: Yes and now.
Male: All the other way that steams up, it looks beautiful.
Carla: Okay and now she is melting the butter so we can have better flavors for the wine because remember that we got to cook them with wine, okay.
Carla: So, we have to wait for the butter to melt.
Male: Which it will not take very long, its already melting.
Carla: So now, the flour is going in. See, you can see it’s getting more body. Now, we’re adding the sour cream.
Carla: I love sour cream.
Male: Do you? So, you’re going to eat some of these mussels with me?
Carla: Yes, I will. Now, we have to take out the mussels from the shell, okay.
Carla: Meanwhile, this soup is cooking. Now, we have to add the juice of the mussels or remember that it’s the white wine.
Male: So, that’s kind of a mixture of the white wine and the juice that was inside the mussels.
Carla: Exactly, that’s what she said.
Male: Okay, just mixing these all up.
Carla: Yes. Now, we have to have to add the mustard.
Carla: And the curry. Remember the curry it’s a culminant, okay.
Carla: It will give a special flavor to the cream. In fact, this dish is going to be served on July 26 for a wedding in Adobe Guadeloupe. So, Martha is practicing also. First of all, you have to set the mussels.
Male: You just kind of stock them all—
Carla: Yes. And you make a decoration.
Male: What I like about this is everything is local. The mussels come from the bay of Ensenada local.
Carla: The Ocean Pacific.
Male: And all the vegetables and everything come locally.
Male: Some red bell peppers and we have some parsley. She’s going to add on top of that. Then she’s explaining everything that she really likes the parsley because it’s a really strong flavor.
Carla: Exactly. That’s what we need because we were cooking with wine so we have to have the same flavor, strong flavor.
Male: Strong flavor in our soup.
Carla: Yes. And we have to go around the mussel, okay.
Male: Not to knock it over or anything.
Male: That’s beautiful.
Carla: It looks delicious.

Male: That’s very good. Those mussels are delicious. Thank you very much.
