For years WTR (welgetravelreport.com) has searched for the best sources for travel related products, services, specialty foods and wine. As we were building the Welge Travel Report we wanted to include a way to share our findings with you.
WTR created a lagniappe category to let you know about special openings and exhibits worldwide and Agora (market place) that shows you the best travel and food offerings.
Welge Travel Report – Here’s the WTR on mustard, dare we say moutarde?
71% of us top our hot dogs with mustard – specifically Heinz yellow mustard.
But WTR’s readers and members are sophisticated travelers. We’ve been to Dijon. Remember the guy in the limousine with the Gray Poupon. That ad campaign changed mustard sales and awareness.
When Dorothy and I were visiting France the day before coming back to the USA we went shopping at a local Supermarche to buy unusual local groceries that we couldn’t get at home. That always included moutarde – Amora, Dijon moutarde. It’s by far the most popular moutarde in France. It was inexpensive, but unavailable in the US.
Friends would bring Amora back to us. Once our goddaughter was bringing some back and had it in her carry on. “No, no madam.” She left customs and had her suitcase retrieved to pack it.
When we were having breakfast at our hotel overlooking the Bosphorus in Istanbul I requested moutarde for my sausages. Out came the hardol (Turkish word for moutarde). Yep – Amora.
It’s now sold in the U.S. We’ll give you a heads up where in a later Agora post.
