07.07.2020: ovenbaked spicy mussels

editor's note

I learned how to prepare mussels by a team of field marketing ladies. That worked for a Dutch brand in mussels (Koninklijke Prins & Dingemanse). Each year this team of dedicated ladies cooked mussels in the Dutch Makro branches. And my role was to coordinate these field marketing events. This was an exciting job. For I had to write recipes and instructions. Secure there was sufficient stock in each branch. And communicate with all stakeholders on the status of sales. And the Prins & Dingemanse ladies made a lot of sales. Their recipe for cooking mussels was a hit. That I updated a bit by adding fresh peppers
