Mostarda is an Italian condiment of fruit in mustard syrup, often served with meats and cheeses. I would by no means claim this is a traditional mostarda, but it’s definitely delicious. Use it as you would a chutney-- in a grilled cheese sandwich, with pork loin or chicken, or just open up a jar to instantly elevate your cheese plate.
Camilla Wynne, Preservation Society founder, has been a pastry professional for a decade. After graduating from pastry school she cut her teeth in some of Montreal's best restaurants, including Les Chevres, Anise, and Laloux, all the while running the pastry half of Backroom Records & Pastries, and touring and recording with rock band Sunset Rubdown. When the band broke up she decided to concentrate on producing her own line of preserves, which had already garnered a following.
Not content to produce garden-variety jams and pickles, Camilla instead favours products that tell a story or illicit a memory and are often, though not intentionally, inspired by cocktails.
