Garten told Bon Appétit, “One of my favorite ingredients is mustard. I use it in so many things. It’s kind of that Provencal thing of mustard, and garlic, and thyme. I use two different kinds: Grey Poupon Dijon, available everywhere, and whole grain—I like when things look like what they really are. The two of them together are great in vinaigrettes and sauces.” We get why Garten likes this brand. Grey Poupon mustard can definitely add that extra tang to a recipe. And Garten isn’t kidding when she says she uses this ingredient a lot. Whether it’s her chicken thighs with creamy mustard sauce (via the Barefoot Contessa website) or her ultimate grilled cheese with Dijon mustard, she has the internet drooling and salivating with every recipe click.
But why should we care about mustard in our recipes? if Garten’s recommendation isn’t enough, Big Daddy Kane rapped about this brand’s luxurious goodness: “What type of mission can I say you on? Because you musta done changed to some Grey Poupon” (via Genius). Enough said.
