Loved reading this. It's the first time I've heard of Telline.


Kalyn, I am happy you enjoyed the post. Learaning about new dishes and ingredients is one of the things I love food blogs most for. I try to contribute a little on my own :-).


It's the first time I've heard of Telline too... They look quite small. How does it taste compared to mussels?


LPC, they are indeed small. The taste is not very similar. I find mussels to be pretty meaty , with a more subdued sweetness and the aroma is dissimilar. I think vongole (carpet clams, in English) are a more fitting comparison taste-wise.

When I first saw these I thought they were cute. The hubby loves them, if I do the work of getting most of the flesh from the shells, there can be a million of them. But they taste really of the sea and should not be missed. I love the photo.


I think the hubby should do his share of work. Earning your taste of telline makes them taste even better ;-).


Where can I buy Telline? I love them and had them in Europe frequently.

Any ideas?
