A flavour sensation! The olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic, lemon and basil work together in a glorious harmony that is much more than the sum of its parts, from ingredients that are fresh, whole, nutritious, identifiable and minimal. And delicious!
Since I can’t rely on my friends to constantly travel to France for my condimental needs, I’ve taken to making my own mustard on a more regular basis. It starts out sharp — really sharp — and settles into a slightly less incendiary pungency.
