Dijon Mustard

The creation of the famous Dijon mustard dates back to the 16th century, when a family of French noblemen, the Naigeon, decided to make their mustard with verjus (green grape juice) instead of vinegar. That’s what makes this mustard different from all the others.

Fun Fact: In 2009, Barack Obama asked his cook to introduce him to the famous Burgundian mustard. The city of Dijon sent him a variety of Amora-Maille mustard.
