Maille has 2 new mustard flavours

January 24, 2012 in Food24Ed posts

Hello foodies,

Ever heard of Maille mustard? It’s really good stuff and you can find it on pretty much any supermarket shelf in the country.
Their Dijon and wholegrain is a staple in my house and I think the range is tops.
Fantastic gastronomic news! They’ve released 2 more great flavours – Horseradish and Xtra hot.

The Horseradish is really 1st class. Run it through some simple mashed potatoes or dollop it onto the top of some grilled trout or salmon – delicious. I also tried it as a condiment for some gourmet boerie, hot off the braai – droolworthy.

The XX-Hot is tasty but not XX-Hot in my book. It’s more like a toned down version of Hot English Mustard without the sting.
