Chef Shop Review and Giveaway

I love hot dogs, I admit it.  There is nothing that tastes better to me especially in the summertime than 3 or 4 hot dogs cooked either on a charcoal grill or over an open fire on a hot dog stick.  We do this probably a dozen or more times during the summer.  Hot Dogs are such an easy thing to cook when you have a house or a yard full of people and want to keep it relatively simple.  My girls both love hot dogs, especially little one who would eat them every day if you gave them to her.  What is even better on a hot dog?  Why mustard of course!  I have never been a fan of mustard really, couldn't even stand the smell of it at times.  My hubby changed my mind entirely on mustard when he introduced me to Chili Dog Mustard.  This is the absolutely best and so addicting, I had to eat it on every hot dog and going from never eating mustard to eating it all of the time was an acquired taste.  Unfortunately, I can't find that mustard anywhere around me here, but I had a fantastic opportunity to try three very unique and distinctive mustards for review courtesy of is different from any online store that you may have visited before.  They have a variety of artisan produced sustainable foods and ingredients that are for the foodies of the world.  I was sent the follow mustard for review:
*Blu Cheese Mustard from France- I absolutely love Blue Cheese, it is one of my very favorite cheeses.  Every time we go out for a meal and I have a salad, I have to have Blue Cheese dressing.  I even got my oldest loving it too!  When I received this mustard, I thought that it definitely was a DIFFERENT combination than I have ever heard of before.  Hubby was a little intrigued but a little hesitant as he is the mustard lover in the house.  This was going to be a new flavor experience for me as well, the only mustard that I have ever eaten was the Chili Dog Mustard.  I wasn't even sure how to eat this mustard. recommends eating this mustard with red meats, so I figured I would put it on a corned beef sandwich.  I added a slice of sharp cheddar cheese to it as well and boy oh boy, what a tasty sandwich!  This Blu Cheese Mustard is absolutely delicious, flavorful, and tangy.  Hubby really enjoyed this as well probably not as much as me.  I think I have used almost half the jar by myself and am trying to save some so hubby can cook some steaks on the grill.  I can just imagine how good this will taste on top of a steak.  $18.17 for a 7 oz jar.
*Mustard With Peppers- I love peppers too, especially red and green peppers.  My hubby was really waiting to try this one, he has never met a pepper that he doesn't like.  We tried this mustard on some hamburgers that hubby cooked on the indoor grill.  This mustard is extremely flavorful with a slight hint of sweetness and not overpowering.  It was a very nice compliment to the grilled flavor of the burger while provided the little bit of bite that some traditional mustard offer.  Red peppers are naturally sweet and when paired with this French mustard, it provides another unique flavor experience that you really can't find anywhere else.  I really loved this mustard as well and it was definitely hubby's favorite.  $18.17 for a 7 oz. jar.
*Walnut Mustard- This one sounded very intriguing and definitely I had no clue what to use this with.  I cut up some sharp cheddar and mild cheddar cheeses along with crackers and set it up in the kitchen for my hubby and I.  The girls both don't like mustard of any kind, the oldest always wrinkles up her nose at the mention of it.  This Walnut Mustard was definitely different but flavorful.  Walnuts are really good by themselves, but in mustard it turns them into a totally different experience.  This was a really good mustard, perfect with cheese.
