We often get calls about one of the world’s most elegant mustards, Pommery Moutarde Royale. Some calls are asking about the taste of this amazing cognac-scented grainy mustard. But many are simply asking, “how do you open it?!”
As part of the Museum’s 25th Anniversary celebration, we’re offering Royale for 25% off — only $16.50 instead of the regular price of $22. This rare treat in the gold and black stone crock tastes as good as it looks. It is sealed with cork and wax, just as it was sealed over a hundred years ago. But there in lies the rub: uncorking the mustard.
While I like to run it under very hot water to melt the wax, the Curator prefers a tapping-it-with-a-knife method. Watch our YouTube video where the Curator demonstrates his easy way to uncork the goodness of Pommery Moutarde Royale.
