Mussel Taste Test - Patrick McMurray

Mussel Taste Test 3.jpgA Toronto seafood restaurant says PEI cultivated blue mussels can hold their own against the best in the world... including the famed "wild" mussels from Ireland. The Starfish Oyster Bed and Grill recently held the unofficial competition. Three well-known foodies participated in the blind taste test. Fresh mussels were also brought in from Maine, and some from as far away as BC. The competition also landed on the pages of Maclean's magazine...in an article by Jake Richler. To find out how PEI's cultured blues fared against the competition, Island Morning's Pat Martel reached Patrick McMurray, the owner of the very busy (and noisy) Starfish Oyster Bed and Grille in Toronto.
