Place half of each of the wine, bay leaves, thyme and peppercorns in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the mussels, cover with a glass lid and cook until opened. As the mussels open, remove them from the pan and set aside. Discard the cooking liquid.
Repeat with the clams and remaining ingredients.
Remove the mussels and clams from their shells and set aside.
