- by Fallot
This traditional French mustard is produced by an independent, family-run mustard mill. Fallot Smooth Dijon Mustard has an aromatic profile and nuanced flavor that’s tart, piquant, and just slightly herbaceous. Equally delicious on a sandwich or a hunk of rustic cheese, this mustard pairs well with smoky sausages like Fabrique Delices Merguez and toasty, butterscotch-like cheeses such as Challerhocker.
- Dijon mustard is named for the French city of Dijon, which is the capital of the Côte-d'Or département and of the Burgundy region.
- The mustard was first created in 1856, when Jean Naigeon substituted verjuice--the acidic juice of unripened grapes--for vinegar in a traditional mustard recipe.
- Etablissements Edmond Fallot predates the invention of Dijon. This family-run operation has been producing mustard in the town of Beaune, just to the south of Dijon, since 1840.
- Fallot uses traditional methods to create their mustard, including grinding the seeds using a millstone to avoid damaging the paste.
- Mustard as a category includes a wide range of flavors, and Dijon is known for its pungent profile and horseradish-like flavoring, which makes it a popular condiment for cheeses, meats, dressings, and marinades.
- Steeped in family history and French artisan tradition, Fallot Mustard Mill, founded in 1840, is the last independent and family-run mustard mill in Burgundy, France.
- They still use traditional stone-milling mustard-making techniques today.
- Their Burgundy Mustard has obtained a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI), a sign of quality in France and across Europe. It’s manufactured using mustard seeds grown in Burgundy and AOC Burgundy wine.
