People who lived before 3000 BC must have been really unlucky. Imagine the disappointment of knowing that had you been born just a bit later, your entire life could have been made infinitely better by the taste of none other than mustard itself! Must be heartbreaking. But luckily for us, these wonderful crops have been domesticated for quite a while now, and that has given some of the brightest culinary minds a lot of time to come up with the most incredible combinations for everyone to enjoy.
Mustard was introduced to France in the 10th century when monks of Saint Germain Des Pres started cultivating the seeds they learned about from Roman artifacts. Not long after, this new and unusual taste became pretty popular, and Dijon turned into the capital of mustard production we still know it to be.
So it comes as no surprise that French mustard is not only the highest of quality but also quite varied in flavor. In our curated selection, you will find everything - from classic taste to more obscure combinations, and no matter which route you choose, the results will leave you and your tastebuds pleasantly surprised!
When talking about mustard, Dijon is probably the first word that comes to mind. So if you’re after some high-quality variations of authentic French Dijon mustard, Edmond Fallot is the clear winner. This brand has created some of the most recognizable tastes throughout its long history - from wholegrain mustard to their renowned Burgundy and blackcurrant dijon - you will never go wrong with Edmond Fallot. Opt for their tarragon mustard flavor for aromatic steaks or basil mustard for a more traditional taste that never disappoints.
If you’re after some sweet and spicy combinations, L’epicurien has got your back. Their mustard with fig is among some of the best, and for a good reason. It fits beautifully with roasts as well as simple sandwiches and elevates them to a brand new level. You could also try their mustard with grape must for a bit of tang.
As for the most royal brand of all - we’ve got Pommery. Their recipe of Meaux mustard has remained a secret since 1760. Favored by royalty as well as regular folk with fancy tastes like us, their flavors are always just right. Not to brag, but one of them is Royal Cognac Mustard, and we’ve got it right here - it looks just as regal as it sounds and tastes even better!
Pro Tip: Take our organic wholegrain mustard, combine it with cream, parsley, garlic, and some salted bacon to make the most incredible mustard soup, popular in the Netherlands and Belgium.
