The mustard of gourmets

The recipe for Moutarde de Meaux wholegrain mustard has been around since at least 1632 and hasn’t changed a beat. Centuries ago, the mustard could be found on the dining tables of the French royal court and was considered the ‘mustard of gourmets’ by the culinary connoisseur Brillat-Savarin.

The word ‘moutarde’ has its origins from two Latin words (mustum ardens). This translates to ‘the burning must’, as mustard was always created from a base of must, or unfermented grape juice. Others reference the reign of Duke Philippe the Téméraire, Duke of Burgundy, who granted the city of Dijon various rights in 1382 , including that of carrying his arms with his motto: ‘Moult me tarde’. Moutarde eventually evolved into the English ‘mustard’.

Try using Moutarde de Meaux Pommery’s whole grain mustard in your leftover chicken sandwich, as part of your Caesar salad dressing, stir it through roast potatoes with crispy bacon or smear it inside your favorite ham sandwich.
