Where Mustard comes from!

Mustard is a very old spice which was used 3000 years ago by the Chinese. Egyptians, Greeks and Romans even cooked with it too.

From the XIV Century, Dijon specialized in the manufacturing of mustard which was served on the Dukes of Burgundy’s tables and was appreciated for its digestive and antiseptic virtues.
