Our friends at the Maille Boutique in the Upper West Side have some awesome products for your holiday shopping! I love their shop all year round, but during the holidays, when you are looking for unique gifts, you are in the right place. This company was founded in 1747, so you know what kind of quality you will find being in business for 268 years!
The above gift set is the amazing Maille Mustard with Chablis White Wine & Black Truffle along with the Maille Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Truffle. Once you are finished with the mustard, you can bring the crock back to their Upper West Side store for a refill from the mustard on tap.
I received some of these amazing items to try from Maille, and I must say, I was just blown away by the flavor! When you receive something form Maille, you can't help but smile!
When everyone else brings wine, chocolates or flowers, delight a foodie host with Maille’s Truffle Collection Giftbox. Coveted by kings and presidents, poets, chefs and gourmands, this collection is served on tap and presented with an exclusive ceramic truffle mustard pot and truffle oil inspired by Maille designs from the late 18th century, together creating a flavour innovation and a taste of tradition in one beautifully presented gift box. Your host will be delighted, and your gift will be the talk of the table.
The Gingerbread and Chestnut Honey mustard is out of this world! Just opening the jar, and smelling all the fabulous ingredients, you are such a happy person! Here is some information from their website:
While being created, this unique mustard recipe must have had the Maille kitchens in a spin but it works brilliantly – and with the most unlikely combinations. This classic from Alsace with spicy gingerbread (pains d’epices) sweetened with honey adds a unique twist to vanilla ice-cream – stir it into homemade ice-cream for a classy dessert. It’s a favourite of the Maille team, along with a spoonful mixed in to cream cheese stuffed mortadella.
For the person who seems impossible to impress, try Sauternes White Wine Vinegar. The flavors of this coveted Bordeaux wine blend create a fruity freshness balanced with a hint of hazelnut and a delicate honeyed roundness. Thanks to its fruity touch, this smooth vinegar – made with Sauternes White Wine from the Garonne region in France – beautifully complements festive dishes such as duck breast, foie gras, and oysters. Packaged in a reusable black stoneware bottle with handpainted with vintage Maille label design, it cuts an elegant figure on any table. 10.1oz for $32
Maille also offers more than 30 flavored Dijon mustards infused with the highest quality ingredients to create vibrant flavor combinations. At $9 per 3.8oz jar, these gourmet mustards make for great stocking stuffers and grab bag selections. Or, mix and match varieties to create a personalized and exquisite gift set. Noteworthy flavors include:
• Mustard with White Wine, Parmesan Cheese and Basil
• Mustard with White Wine, Fig and Coriander
• Mustard with White Wine and Walnuts
• Mustard with White Wine, Saffron and Isigny Crème Fraîche
