What's your favorite mustard? Fallot mustard photo added.

#1 Post by J a y H a c k » June 4th, 2019, 11:32 am

The search function forced me back a decade to find a broad-based mustard discussion, and most of the photos are now bad links, so I can't tell what half of the recommendations are. I like Pommery Moutarde de Meaux, but I know that there are better ones out there and you (meaning me) really need a bunch of different ones for different purposes. I periodically buy random mustards at the store in search of a good one, but my most recent sortie resulted in a Sriracha mustard that was all tongue burn and no mustard flavor. So what's your favorite(s).

PS - LOOK WHAT I FOUND! Fallot mustard at Yaranoush in White Plains. They bring it in themselves because the wife loves it and they sell the extra.

I love mustard...in almost all forms. My go to these days is from Butterfly Bakery of Vermont. Their website isn't that great as I know they have a bunch of different mustards. My standard is the one they make with Heady Topper. But I've been digging the Chipotle mustard that they make too. I typically stock up when I'm in VT.

Although I like them all, I prefer the grainy style.

I like Oscar's More Than Mustard. I wonder if they are similar as the Oscar's has that sweet and hot thing going.

You mean other than Grey Poupon, of course?

I like Edmond Fallot Dijon. The one with truffles is great, too.

BTW I do like Grey Poupon, but it’s pretty mild next to a real Dijon.

I've got some Edmond Fallot we bought in Burgundy in the fridge right now. Good stuff, but it's fairly strong.

Only sold at Oscar's Smokehouse in Warrensburg, NY. Oscar's is one of those dying breed gems that has been around forever.

For Dijon, Fallot is good, Maille is widely available and decent enough, and Roland is actually very good and inexpensive.

At airport I picked up two different Edmond Fallots. One is a "Bourgogne" made with white wine. The other is a "dijon" made with vinegar, and is presumably stronger. I haven't tried either yet. The Bourgogne was more expensive.

One of our winemakers near Beaune took us on the tour of the Fallot factory - he had never been. It was fascinating and I learned a lot about the history and making. If they recently produced a batch (often) the aroma is intense and can be tough on the eyes. After the tour, is the tasting/sales room. I bought a ton of the ones they don’t export. Love the Pinot Noir, Vin Jaune and Fig.

When I commented to the vigneron how inexpensive the mustard is, he lamented, “yes, but their product is on the shelf minutes after production. Mine waits 3 years!”

By the way, Bornier makes a very good inexpensive and readily available Dijon mustard, tho Fallot now seems to be everywhere and not much pricier. Certainly more intense.

I order Maille as well - LOVE their black truffle with chablis or something like that. Works well on anything.

Maille straight from the tap in Paris. Black truffle with Chablis is my favorite, too.

I haven't found myself digging most of the flavored mustards- though haven't tried the chablis/truffle one mentioned. Have had a bunch of different herb, garlic, tarragon, etc, mustards and most don't do much for me.

I use grey poupon for cooking a lot.
For fancy mustards I use Maille- the self imported dijon and the locally purchased whole grain country.
I use Beaver Sweet/Hot for a few specific things- i.e. prosciutto and parmesan puff pastry appetizers.
For most picnic type situations I tend toward Gulden's spicy brown.

I agree 100% that the Maille product purchased in France highly outperform their domestic counterparts, big fan of the Chablis and Truffle as others have noted. For all of the Maille fans out there, if you haven't tried Amora (regular, not extra forte) give it a spin. I find it has a similar level of intensity to French purchased Maille and it can be bought on Amazon

Agree. Amora Moutarde de Dijon is our go to basic Dijon-style mustard. In my opinion, it is way better than other Dijon mustards available in the US. Beyond that, at any given time, we have 10+ flavored mustards that I believe is more about your preferred flavor. The Maille black and white truffle mustards are fantastic, although expensive.

Apparently I'm slumming it with the US purchased Maille, but I still think it's pretty darned good. I'll have to try Amora. I tried to find the French version of Maille available for shipping to the US and either failed or gave up because of cost, I forget which.

Those Fallot mustards are great, although the tarragon flavor is so strong in that one that I need to mix it with another mustard if using a significant amount.

Trader Joe's has a horseradish mustard in a clay jar that's really flavorful and really spicy. I can't keep my hands off it when we have some. I think it's their own brand. I absolutely love it on crackers with a good cheddar. Then I end up just putting the mustard on the crackers and eating way too much.

I used to like the Sir Kensington, but now I notice the sweetness way too much, thus these other choices.

Is that a different fallot? I think most in this thread are referring to Edmund fallot, which seem to have different labels.

Maybe it's the negotiant.

How about these guys

https://www.lacourtisanegourmet.com/col ... ard?page=2

Says they have freshly pumped Maille black and white truffle, although $$$.

Fallot in ceramic too although the flavors appear sold out.

Website is frustrating, I had scroll through all the mustards to find them interspersed.

Doug, my favorite use for this mustard is in a tarragon cream sauce for roast chicken. I deglaze my roasting pan with white wine and blend this mustard in as I build the sauce. Even the kids drag their fingers through the sauce during dinner.

I tried the Fallot Bourgogne (which I noted has different price and ingredients to the Dijon). Quite nice. Has a bit of a deep horse radish like burn on the end... not sure how I feel about it because if I use a lot then I get a lot of burn, but if I use a little then I don’t get enough mustard flavor. Clearly a great mustard and I will enjoy researching the rest of the jar (looks like a stone or ceramic jar).

They intentionally cut the American product to make it “creamier” (less hot). I’m on the fence, as I enjoy both; just depends on how I’m using it. You can also get on tap in London, but I don’t recall if that is full strength or not. My favorite is probably the d’Esplette, which I can eat on sandwiches until I’m red in the face.

What Mark said. We buy 12 crocks at a time and bring them home in a wine shipper. When we run out of mustard, we go back to Paris.

Once we got stopped at customs coming back into JFK and when they asked us what was in the box, we said "Mustard!" The guy gave us a very skeptical look and proceeded to open our box. He took one sniff and said "yep, mustard. Carry on."

That sounds great. I don't eat chicken, but I'm going to try something similar with fish.

We keep it in the fridge and have never had an issue. We go through a crock every 2 or 3 months, so the last of our 12 pack stock are in there for a while.
