Mustard, France’s most famous condiment is running out and there are no signs of its return to their shelves. Marc Désarménien’s “Maison Fallot” mustard boutique located in Dijon usually opens at 10 am with 10 to 15 people already waiting outside. The people wait every morning to get their hands on this now luxurious condiment.
Désarménien said “my grandfather has lived through two world wars and the post-war period when there were ration tickets in France, but even then there was mustard! Now whether you go to Lille, Marseille, Bordeaux, or Strasbourg, nobody has any mustard left. It’ all sold within a few hours.”
France is the largest consumer of mustard in the world and its relationship stretches back to the middle ages. The Dukes of Burgundy who made it so popular by combining it with tough meats because of its digestive qualities. It has now become an absolute staple in French cuisine and French households.
