Shop bought pastry is a handy fridge standby to put together a quick meal and it's such good quality, that I don't mind buying it instead of making it. It's a great time saver, but this post isn't about pastry, it's about mustard.
I have a love affair with mustard. My first crush on it was as a small child and the mustard was French. Not the authentic French mustard that comes from our neighbouring country, no, it was the little jars of brown mustard from Colemans.
I would sneak into the kitchen, climb onto the worktop and secretly delve into the store cupboard until I found the French mustard, then I would sit there happily eating it with a teaspoon until I was discovered.
I have a more sophisticated taste in my mustard relationships now and the mustard I used in this recipe was a Mustard with White Wine, Lemon and Garlic from Maille.
If you haven't come across Maille, they are a very old French company established more than 265 years ago by father and son Antoine-Claude Maille and Antoine-Claude Maille.
They kindly sent me some of this mustard and a bottle of their Walnut Oil. I mixed some of their mustard through my veggie haggis to spice it up for the pasties.
