This limited-edition condiment comes packaged in traditional stoneware 125g jars, while in the US 4.4oz and 8.8oz jars are being sold.
“fruity, light and acidulous premium mustard of medium strength”, it has been created to mix into a vinaigrette to “bring out the freshness and fruitiness of a prawn, grapefruit, cucumber and avocado salad”.
Maille also suggests using it for marinades or grilled dishes as well as with ceviche.

Honor the women in your life this Mother’s Day with a glass or two of dry rosé wine from the Provence region of France. Provence is the birthplace of dry rosé and the world’s leading rosé region. Made from red grapes, rosé from Provence are elegant wines – they have the body of red wine and the crispness of white. They are refreshing, very versatile, and pair well with a variety of cuisines.
“Wine aficionados know that dry rosés from Provence are celebratory wines, and Mother’s Day is one of those perfect occasions,” said Francois Millo, director of the CIVP/Provence Wine Council. Whether served with a casual brunch or a formal family dinner, rosé will complement the Mother’s Day meal from beginning to end – from poached salmon to ripe berries to rich chocolate truffles.
With the growing fashion in dry rosé, a bottle of Provençal rosé will enhance the day for wives, mothers, grandmothers, and aunts alike. “I’m delighted to see the rising appreciation for dry rosé from Provence on North American shores,” said Millo.
An affordable luxury, Provence rosé is typically priced between $12 and $20 per bottle, making it one of the best values in fine wine on the market today.
