Mussels cooked in lemongrass-scented coconut milk
At the opening of his new restaurant, Luke takes time out to show Lily one of his new dishes. "With a classic mussels and white wine dish, I would have suggested a dry riesling, but this beautiful Vietnamese recipe just begs for something with more exotic aromas. That hint of chilli also deserves a bit of attention as well, which is why I’ve gone for something with some residual sugar, as this will balance any heat that comes through. It’s alive with juicy apple and lemon flavours, and some…

The vegetables are cooked together until they’ve broken down completely and the full flavour has developed.
