Pommery Wholegrain Mustard, Moutarde de Meaux
Pommery mustard is made in Meaux, a cathedral town 60km west of Paris. The town’s mustard production began in 771 AD, when Charlemagne decreed that canons and monks in cathedral towns like Meaux should cultivate it.
Meaux was also a centre for the quarrying of millstones, which helped bring many craftsmen to the area. In 1760, a dignitary of the Meaux cathedral chapter passed on the canons’ secret mustard recipe to a stonecutter. The stonecutter was called J. B. Pommery, and this ancient recipe is still used by Moutarde de Meaux to make their famous Pommery mustard today.
Moutarde de Meaux are regarded as one of the world’s great moutardiers. Their award-winning Pommery mustards are a favourite of professional chefs and home gourmands alike. All of their mustards are packed in traditional stoneware jars. These jars help to preserve the mustards’ characteristic pungency, so they taste fresher for longer. This jar contains 250g.
