Exclusive Christmas Canapes
la maison maille partners with nutbourne to create exclusive christmas canapes
Bringing together the best of British ingredients with a touch of sophisticated French flavour
This festive season, La Maison Maille is partnering with British restaurant, Nutbourne and Head Chef, OIiver Gladwin, to create a collection of Christmas canapés that will be featured on the a la carté menu throughout December, replacing Nutbourne’s popular ‘Mouthfuls’. The collaborative and limited-edition menu showcases the transformative nature that mustard has on these one bite wonders and proves that the right ingredient has the ability to define a dish.
With a focus on seasonal produce and an emphasis on wild, foraged, locally grown and sustainable food from Gladwin’s own family farm, the Mouthfuls bring together the best of British with a touch of sophisticated French flavour, showcasing the versatility of this classic condiment.
Traditionally, canapés are served during cocktail hour and it is often desired that they are salty or spicy in order to encourage guests to drink more. The complex flavour profile and varied tasting notes of each Maille mustard pairs perfectly with Nutbourne’s Nutty Brut Sparkling Wine – created and bottled at the Gladwin’s family vineyard in Sussex.
The mustard filled morsels are all priced at £1.50 or the full selection for £6.00 and will be served on the menu throughout December. The full selection of Mouthfuls is as follows:
- Beetroot Macaroon With Maille Honey Mustard
- Partridge & Maille Dijon Mustard Croquette
- Maille Truffle Mustard Eclair With Confit Egg Yolk
- Black Carrot With Maille Blue Cheese & White Wine Mustard, Apple Maragold Gel
Oliver Gladwin, Head Chef and co-founder of Nutbourne, said:
“Christmas is on the horizon, which means it’s officially canapé season. I was really excited about making Mouthfuls with Maille, creating delicate little taste explosions, using different techniques and textures. These recipes using Maille mustards are a great example of how much flavour can be packed into one mouthful by perfectly balancing flavours.
They’re a great way to begin a meal or could even be enjoyed on their own with a glass of festive fizz. They really showcase how mustard can be used to enhance the taste and flavour of great quality food.”
