Mmmm mustard

So I really like French mustard and feel that it is far superior to American yellow mustard. I’ve yet to find a mustard that I enjoy more than a French Dijon mustard. Just today I was eating a Camembert sandwich (with butter) and thinking how great this sandwich would be with some nice French mustard on it. Then I began to wonder why the French never put mustard on their sandwiches. I’ve never found a sandwich in France with mustard on it unless I requested it. Oddly enough I’ve had sandwiches with ketchup on them, but no mustard. So now I’m wondering, what does France do with all this yummy mustard?

you must be bored all by yourself in paris - since the volume and nature of your blogs has increased/changed significantly. Get out there and solve the mystery of the mustard!

Yes this is what happens when I have no one to talk to and I'm left alone with my thoughts.

As a fellow mustard connoisseur , I very much appreciate the mustart blog. French mustard IS far superior to American mustard! Good job France on doing something correctly. (We just need to teach them how to use it on sandwiches instead of butter). Bring me back a big vat of it when you come back!

Pierre didn't get it exactly right with the mayonnaise. The americans perfected it with Miracle Whip

You're comparing American Yellow with Zesty French... have you lost your mind. Even Ronald McDonald would prefer French over American.
