How do you celebrate National Mustard Day, with more mustard!
August 1 is National Mustard Day and there is a question on the table. Do you you slather, spread or dab? Is your preference yellow, golden, spicy, honey or hot? What are we talking about…mustard, of course! Mustard is the sunny condiment that is perfect for serving on and in summer foods. What would ballpark hot dogs be without a smear of classic yellow mustard? Potato salad and deviled eggs beg for a dollop of this fun tangy condiment. We wouldn’t dream of eating a Hot Pretzel without a smear of golden mustard.
However, mustard is not just to slather on casual summer food. There are so many brands available at the grocery store and online these days that it would be a shame to limit ourselves to just a few. August 1, 2020 is National Mustard Day (the food holiday is always the first Saturday in August) so if you enjoy the tart and tangy taste of mustard, give yourself a treat by trying these fancier styles of mustard:
You may want to purchase Pommery Mustard just for the handsome crockery jar with a red wax lid. What’s inside is just as fabulous – the finest French grainy brown mustard. Try these new exotic flavors too – Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery with black truffle, the Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery with candied lemon zest and basil leaves, the Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery with Voatsiperifery wild pepper or the Moutarde de Meaux® Pommery with Espelette pepper. These lovely mustards make delectable mustard sauces to serve with Filet Mignon, Grilled Salmon, Shrimp and Chicken.
Maille Black Truffle Mustard is like no mustard you’ve ever tasted. Maille is known for their French Dijon mustard and this mustard builds on the classic tangy smooth Chablis-infused Dijon taste and adds bits of Black Winter Truffle. Packaged in a handsome black stoneware jar. Serve with scrambled eggs, risotto, leg of lamb and roasted meats.
Robert Rothschild Blue Cheese Dijon is savory and sweet, combining blue cheese, honey and spices to create a mustard that is delicious on hamburgers and bratwurst. Add another layer of flavor to vinaigrettes and potato salad with Blue Cheese Dijon.
Are you inspired to expand your mustard repertiore? But wait, there’s more: curried mustard in deviled eggs and chicken salad, habanero honey mustard for those who like it sweet and hot, Bavarian mustard to slather on grilled bratwurst, and don’t forget the grainy old style mustard on your favorite deli sandwich.
Which mustard will you treat your taste buds to on National Mustard Day – HOORAY!
