Moutarde


Did you know that there was a store in Paris dedicated to mustard? Truffle flavored mustard, white wine flavored mustard, traditional mustard... I could go on for a while.

I saw it first on the travel channel which plays in Taiwan. When I was in London, one of my colleagues said, "You know there is this mustard store..." Then at dinner Friday night a completely different collegue from our Paris office said, "And of course there is the mustard store."

It was fate. I had to go see this famous store for myself. It was a very cool experience, aside from the scary moment when the sales lady asked if my purchases were gifts (in French) and I responded with a frightened, bewildered stare. I haven't tried the mustard yet, but several jars are packed away in my suitcase, ready for the trip home to Taipei.
