Edmond Fallot Tarragon Dijon Mustard
- THE STORY
The Fallot family has enjoyed a worldwide reputation for 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 simple blending of Fallot's superior Dijon mustard with fresh tarragon is the key to this hearty mustard - vibrant in both flavor and color! Just a dab of this spicy mustard will turn a boring sandwich into a spectacular gourmet treat. Delicious with chicken, turkey, seafood and ham, and provides a wonderful base for a savory vinaigrette.
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 Desarmenien 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.
