Looking for that Je Ne Sais Quoi? Whip-Up Your Own Flavoured Mustard

87589HHave you ever laboured in the kitchen only to find that a meal you’ve made is left wanting a little something more? Harry Lalousis, mustard sommelier at La Maison Maille, the oldest mustard brand in the world, suggests adding some pizazz by making your own flavoured mustard.

“Start with a cup of Maille Dijon as a base,” instructs Lalousis, “then add a custom blend of fruit, vegetables, herbs or spices, mashing with a mortar and pestle to blend the flavours.” Try making some of his most popular blends at home:

  1. Strawberry Basil Mustard.

For a sweet mustard, add 1/2 cup strawberries, 1 teaspoon honey, and 1 teaspoon fresh basil.

  1. Roasted Garlic Mustard.

For something savoury, blend in 4 cloves of roasted garlic, 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, and 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano.

  1. Maple Syrup Mustard.

For all-Canadian decadent mustard, start with Maille Original or Old Style Mustard, and add 1 teaspoon of maple syrup and 6 blueberries.
