SOUP: Heat butter and oil in a separate saucepan and sauté onions and garlic and softened, about 5 minutes, then add mustard, curry powder and seasoning. Pour in white wine and reduce stock and bring to boil. Add mussel meat, cover and cook over high heat for about 6 minutes. VEGETABLES: Fry in heated butter for about 5 minutes. Season and reserve. BINDING: Mix cornflour and water until smooth, then stir into simmering soup. Stir in cream and cook, stirring, over low heat until soup begins to thicken and comes to boil. Check seasoning. Serve garnished with julienne vegetables and reserved mussels, and sprinkled with chervil.
