the mustard of all mustards - via gent!
recently my parents went on a trip through brussels (lucky them) and they brought me back some of the most sought after mustard on earth. no really--- it's nigella lawsons' favorite- but- this little shop refuses to ship the yellow goodness to her or anyone else. you can only get it straight from the shop, and straight from the mustard barrel!
i decided this special mustard deserved to be paired with some worthy bread-- so i set out to almondine for a pretzel and cheese roll. truly amazing on its own, but i knew it would go great with any mustard.
i have to be honest-- this spicy yellow gold lived up to the hype. great mustard flavor, a bit of spice that subsides quickly after. the adorable jar it comes in isn't too bad either. i also made some AMAZING salad dressing with it. i don't consider myself a condiment snob, but i really do appreciate a sauce that is made with this much skill, love and tradition.
