Easter is on its way and with it comes one of the busiest and most enjoyable times for us at the Deli. This is the time of year when things really start to buzz on the north Norfolk coast and the whole area dives into an energetic frenzy of socialising, dining, drinking, walking, cycling – generally all the things that makes for an enjoyable time.

Giving it some Mussel
Mussels: tasty, more-ish and good for you

This month in Thornham Deli, we are all about mussels – the shellfish, not the bicep variety!

We source all our fresh produce as locally as we can, particularly fish and shellfish, which is why all the mussels on our menu are sourced just three miles down the road from Brancaster.

Once referred to as the 'poor man's shellfish', because they were cheap and plentiful, mussels – which are a type of clam – can be a meal for royalty let alone a poor man! They are versatile in the kitchen, eaten as a dish on their own or in salads, soups, or as a topping for pasta. And we are particularly spoilt in North Norfolk as this area of the coast is teeming with healthy, juicy mussels. This means they are still relatively cheap, plentiful and sustainable.
