World-Wide Mustard Gallery 2011

These are scenes from the royal gala at the National Mustard Museum — the first-ever fundraising event for the non-profit Mustard Museum was the culmination of the 2011 World-Wide Mustard Competition. Award-winning mustard makers were presented their medals, local chefs competed in the Iron Mustard Chefs Challenge (using a winning mustard, of course), and everyone had a great time mixing with Mustard Royalty (all on the heels of that other royal event that took place across the pond on April 29). Sadly, despite having plenty of time to make our event after their royal event too place nearly 12 hours earlier, Prince William and his new wife, the former Catherine Middleton, did not make it to Middleton, Wisconsin, to help the royal mustards celebrate.
