One of the most popular nights at La Petite Bouchee, our pop-up restaurant in our Citroen HY van, Demelza, is Fruits De Mer. This is my homage to this fabulous dish! Come and find us: http://www.edibleexperiences.com/p/189502065/La-Petite-Bouchee/100001/La-Petite-Bouchee

If you can eat seafood from dusk until dawn,

Can we tempt you with a langoustine, mussel or prawn?

If your taste for crustacea makes you give more than a damn,

Tuck into our whelks and a puddle of clam.

Why not try our oysters – go on, just one!

We get them from the incomparable Veasey & Son.

Or lush out on lobster (that’s what I’d grab),

Or contemplate consuming delectable crab!

And with these extraordinary platters, of course,

A dish of our excellent, specialty sauce!
