Dijon


Dijon is a city in the Bourgogne region in France. As of 2005, the city had an estimated population of 150,800, and the metropolitan area of Greater Dijon had an estimated population of 236,953.

Dijon is, of course, internationally famous for Dijon mustard (French: moutarde de Dijon), although nowadays almost all mustard seeds are imported (mainly from Canada) rather than grown locally. Additionally, most "Dijon mustard" is now produced on an industrial scale, and not necessarily in the vicinity of the city. However, if you do visit Dijon, you will find that there are mustard shops in the city, and they offer a range of mustard varieties, including varieties with unusual flavorings (for example: fruit flavorings), and often sell this mustard in decorative hand-painted china pots.

  4. Dijon was the home of the Dukes of Burgundy from the early 11th century until late in the 15th century.

  5. Dijon is famous as being the source of Dijon mustard (French: moutarde de Dijon). Today however, almost the mustard seeds used in making are imported, rather than grown locally.

  6. Crème de cassis, a type of blackcurrant liqueur originates from Dijon. Crème de cassis is most frequently drank in the form of a cocktail named "Kir" (named after a former mayor of Dijon, canon Félix Kir), which is made from a mixture of white wine and the liqueur.
