WHO: ChefJune is a chef and writer based in New York. WHAT: A dish special enough for a dinner party, and quick enough for a Monday night. HOW: Sauté onion and shallot, then get mussels steaming with wine, cream, and aromatics. WHY WE LOVE IT: These mussels take us to a Paris bistro — and they get to the table in under twenty minutes. Add a loaf of crusty bread and a glass of wine, and we’re over the moon.

Just when your shallots are starting to feel left out, add those in, too.

Steam until all the mussels are opened -- this should take about 5 minutes.
