Edmond Fallot Dijon Mustard
- THE STORY
Arguably, the finest Dijon mustard on the market.
The Fallot family has enjoyed a worldwide reputation for producing exceptional quality mustards since 1840. The mustards are made in Beaune, France, near Dijon, where seeds are selected for their high quality and then ground in a traditional stone mill.
The paste for classic Dijon Mustard is obtained by mixing one-third either black (Brassica Nigra) or brown (Brassica Juncea) mustard seeds with two-thirds verjuice, grape juice harvested in the Burgundy region of France-the finishing touch to this noble mustard. The result is a smooth Dijon mustard with a characteristic bite.
The tart, piquant taste of this classic mustard adds depth of flavor to marinades, sauces and salad dressings, especially a traditional French vinaigrette. It also brightens sandwiches and is an elegant condiment for cold plates and hot buffets.
A land of vineyards, Burgundy was always well located to furnish the increasingly numerous mustard makers in and around Dijon with new wines and vinegar. It did not take very long for mustard to become a real tradition in Dijon. In 1634, the first official articles of association of the City of Dijon Corporation of Vinegar and Mustard Makers came to regulate the craft.
While the Fallot Mustard Mill has outstanding production facilities, it has also maintained the expertise of the artisan mustard maker. Mark Désarménien, is proud to continue the uncompromising production of Dijon mustard by stone grinding the seeds, artfully blending them with the highest quality ingredients and following the Fallot's own family recipes. Fallot Mustard Mill is one of the few companies in the world to use traditional stone milling methods which retain all of the paste's gustatory qualities, and give Fallot mustards their incomparable taste and flavor. The result is a piquant quality and robust taste not available in commercially produced "Dijon-style" mustards.
