In the latest video from Food Curated's Liza de Guia, we meet mussel farmer Gordon King. He farms 1.25 million pounds of Mediterranean mussels—an especially meaty-plump kind of mussel that's sought after by chefs—per year on the southern end of Washington's Puget Sound. He also looks like a brawnier version of Sean Connery, which is kind of what you'd hope for in a mussel farmer, right? Listen to him talk about harvest season in this video.
