Maille, Paris: 6 reviews and 9 photos
What would french cooking be whitout mustard, vinegars and spices ?
The slightly irritating mustard's taste is used to enhance so many french recipes and is so familiar that the expression 'la moutarde me monte au nez' has become a common way to say 'i'm gradually growing irritated'.
Thus, it's not a surprise to find a shop entirely dedicated to ... mustards.
Created in 1720 by Antoine Maille, the "Maison Maille" was officially registered in 1747 and still exists under the same name an location.
There, you can find, not only mustards (about 20 different sorts), but also vinegars, gherkins, mayonnaises, mixed spices and hand made ceramic replicas of ancients mustard, oil or vinegar containers
What to buy: Baskets and wooden boxes filled with mustards and vinegars
Condiments in ancient presentations
What to pay: Depends on what you buy, prices from about 10 Euros on.
