Le Cordon Bleu®, known as "the world's most famous cooking school" for its quality education, has once again won accolades for its award winning mustards. Le Cordon Bleu Provence Herb mustard was awarded a Gold Medal in the Herb category at the 2008 World Wide Mustard Competition. 400 mustards from seven countries competed in 19 categories for Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and ultimately the Grand Champion award. Entrants were judged by chefs and food journalists.
The World Wide Mustard Competition, coordinated by Barry Levenson, Curator of the Mt Horeb Mustard Museum® in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, is one of many events and activities of the 15th Napa Valley Mustard Festival held February 2 through March 29, 2008.

Its proceeds support local businesses and non-profit organizations and the festival attracts national and international sponsors. The awards ceremony will take place March 14, 2008 in Napa, California.
