Colman’s Mustard (http://www.colmansusa.com/) is excited to show Americans about ways that they can incorporate traditional and authentic British foods into their Olympic viewing parties.

Colman’s Mustard has been a British culinary staple for nearly 200 years, and even received a royal warrant from the Queen of England in 1866. Colman’s is famous for its bright yellow and red tin, reflective of the fiery heat that makes the mustard so distinct.

While Colman’s Mustard can easily be added to regular American dishes, it is also used as a spicy, innovative ingredient, adding a strong burst of flavor to traditional British fare such as meatloaf, Sheppard’s pie, deviled eggs or bangers and mash.
