The Modern Pantry: Tin Mustard

By Ashley Beck | June 11, 2013

Tin Dizdarevic, creator of Tin mustard

With a need for an accoutrement to a charcuterie board during service, Tin Dizdarevic, a Colicchio vet, quickly improvised and came up with this “caviar pop” grainy mustard. With simple, natural ingredients to back it up, the texture is really what makes this condiment shine in an array of dishes.

A great partner to its original mate, charcuterie, Tin Mustard is also great in vinaigrettes, on grilled meats or an all-American hot dog. Add it to this grilled sausage and pepper sandwich or a healthy and simple green salad with shake and pour vinaigrette (made) in a jar. They guarantee it’s so good, you can even eat it solo from the spoon. Let’s just say, Tin has taken The Mustard Revolution to a whole new level. Read More

Chinese cuisine has become a huge part of American culture. Nearly every city and town across the country has a restaurant dedicated to serving Chinese food, and it seems as if the average American can’t get enough of it. In fact, Chinese food has become so popular that many non-Chinese have tried to imitate it, but few have successfully replicated it. Chinese chefs often stress that preparation is key, but what may be even more important is the selection of ingredients. Read More
