Raw shucking: musseling in on Marlborough

From Nine To Noon, 11:33 am on 17 February 2020

Family business Mills Bay Mussels specialises in raw-shucked mussels - a method they decided on after listening to locals' preferred way of prepping and eating them. Art and Helen Blom own the business, but the whole family get stuck in at their tasting room and pack-house which sits by Havelock's picturesque marina.  Eldest daughter, 19 year old Maegen Blom helps with marketing. She joins Kathryn Ryan with tips for eating mussels raw and steamed.
