It’s the newest export from France to the Upper West Side of New York City so we’re very excited to be here with a lady who is a master mustard sommelier my is one of the oldest historical brands in France we originated in 1747 and 267 years later we’ve opened our first boutique in the United States that’s so exciting it is very exciting and we’re very happy to be here so as the mustard Somali a for my in the United States part of my role is to help clients differentiate what type of Dijon mustard best suits their needs to differentiate among the nuances of the flavors that we carry and also to create and suggest pairing that’s fantastic and you did do a lot of mustard tastings here too so you can comment oh yeah that’s so exciting and so tell us a little bit about the style of Dijon mustard sure so Dijon mustard actually refers to a fabrication process that the mustard goes through so for example at my we use black and brown seeds that are cut instead of being ground and that is one of the reasons why our mustard is so intense and so flavorful and it’s a whole-grain mustard which is fantastic and has a lot of health benefits as well and so then from there you have this huge amount of gorgeous flavors and pairings and how do you come up with that well I magic its altar taste right right so I do a lot of tasting and trying things it’s one of the benefits of my job and so a lot of it comes from either selecting something that is perhaps um iconically French uh-huh I always love to pair it with something that is iconically American Oh like a lot like what what would you do so we have here as one of our pairings a fein herb mustard okay and fina herb is a very bold mustard with three herbs that are really fundamental to french cooking’s okay chives parsley interval in it her pen what I did was I created a dip using fat-free Greek yogurt Oh Fein herb a little chopped up basil which is something that we love to do and in the US for dinner parties and for d’oeuvres or as a snack so it is the the best of France meeting the best if the u.s. in a dip that’s fantastic and as you mentioned really really super healthy because you have the probiotics in the low-fat yogurt which adds a little tang to it then of course all the herbs in the mustard are filled with antioxidants and in of itself the product of a mustard is very very low fat and what I love is to suggest for people to just increase the palatability of the so-called healthy foods like a lot of people won’t eat healthy foods because they think they have to be bland but when you use a product like mustard you know with all of these beautiful different flavors to it it just enhances the food and vegetables and salads and fish and meats without adding too much more calories to it so it’s really a great idea health wise it is and it’s a mustard is a very very flavorful it’s very intense it is as you said low in fat low in calories so a small amount will work wonders in a dish right and also the other nutrition benefits of mustard are is that they come from the cruciferous family right so they’re very similar to broccoli brussel sprouts and cauliflower which has a lot of sulfur a thing in it which are enter anti-cancer fighting properties right in addition to that it also has selenium and magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids in it so who knew the little mustard bottle had all these different you know health benefits too it’s really fantastic looking at some beautiful artisanal mustards on tap today a la maison mya and we’re going to talk to period and we’re going to look at what we have on

think it’s hot and then you have to kind of sit for a moment and think that it’s even gotten hotter Wow fantastic i like that pause hmm you can actually smell how hot it is oh I think I just paused very good Wow and just and what would you pair that with what this is a great pairing for anything that is oh good white wine it’s very bold when you think of something very Hardy like beef whether it’s a steak or whether you’re doing some kind of stir fry yeah it’s a great pairing for that because it is just as much intensity Wow fantastic oh great so what do we have next year so next we have what I described as the little black dress of mustards shibly so it’s a little bit more refined it’s a much softer taste okay it has a little bit of a citrus tone to it and is a great pairing for a chicken mo so great pairing for lamb as well even if the new gratz so you can’t you can’t go wrong with shibly right right and so and you would do it in in a vinaigrette as well as just accompanying on the side we’re just simple dipping of the the chicken okay so it’s a very very balanced mustard hmm you can smell the citrus in it I do Wow Jessica oh very good perfectly company to the chicken yum
