Its aim is rather self-explanatory; to glorify and honor one of the world’s most famous condiments. From Dijon to the English, or a generous serving on an All-American hot dog, this day your chance to voice your love for your favorite combination.
Mustard itself is considered to be over 5000 years old. Originating in the country India when it was first farmed in 3000BC. It was then brought to Britain by the Romans. They were the 1st to use it as a seasoning and pickling spice!
