Popcorn Infused Mussel Broth Recipe | Amanda Beck

Amanda Beck decided to get experimental during the Mealie Challenge with this Popcorn infused Mussel Broth Recipe.

You can forgo the popcorn if you wish.


Amanda popped the popcorn then she infused some cream before poaching the mussels in it.

Pete did not say much at the time but the judges decided that Amanda’s dish was good enough to go through to the Top 25 and the Big Breakfast challenge.

They made Amanda wait however as she was one of the last four to get the news with only two places remaining and drew a huge sigh of relief when she realised she had made it through.

Some say he holds the world record for potatoes peeled in a minute. It is believed he set this record as a 6 year old while living at the ANC camp in Tanzania during the 1970's
