The unique mustard trio introduce three new flavor profiles — Beet with a Touch of Honey, Olive with Herbes de Provence, and Carrot with a Hint of Shallot. With culinary trends coming and going as quickly as the restaurants that display them, one thing is for sure this season – veggies are in! Many celebrity chefs are making vegetables the stars of their dishes rather than just a side, which means Maille is right on trend with this new collection. Perfect for any hostess or home cook, these new flavors can add a little extra oomph to your dishes. Here’s how:
Serving suggestions: Add extra depth to cold or hot borscht, or make a beautiful Dijon vinaigrette fora salad of orange and fennel. For entertaining, serve on crostini with creamy goat cheese and slivered almonds or with whipped ricotta and chopped pistachios. Use as a spread to elevate even a simple turkey sandwich.
Serving suggestions: A perfect complement to roasted eggplant and cauliflower. Add a spoonful to a refreshing gazpacho, or smear atop grilled lamb chops. For entertaining, spread on flatbread then top with crumbled feta cheese or amp up the classic bruschetta recipe. Perfect for potato and pasta salads or as a sophisticated spread for a tuna sandwich.
Serving suggestions: Spread on the tart dough of a vegetable quiche, or use in a creamy dressing for spinach salad or shredded cabbage slaw. Mix with fresh thyme and slather on beef before roasting for a new take on a classic stew. Top a flaky white fish for a burst of flavor, or swirl into a spring vegetable soup. For entertaining, add to yogurt to yield a refreshing dip for crudités or grilled vegetables.
