As every year, a highlight of this event is the Bénichon mustard competition. The candidates compete in two categories: amateur and professional.
The jury composed of members of the Confraternity of mustardmasters will proceed to the tasting and nomination of the winners. The sweet and sour jams, which are inseparable from a Bénichon's meal, are all part of the manufacturing secret. Each holds its own recipe, handed down under the seal of family secrecy and skilfully refined and improved over the generations. Taste, texture and consistency are three aspects judged by the mustardmasters. At the end of the tastings, the most subtle preparation will win the title of the best mustard of Bénichon in the canton of Fribourg.
Note that since this year, only the 3 best results of the profesionnal category will be published.
The competition takes place under the Arcades of the Place de l'Eglise.
Participants can register until August 13th.
A service of harvest of the pots at home takes place Tuesday, August 21st.
The contest participants have until Thursday 23 August (5pm) to bring the pot to the Estavayer-le-Lac Tourist Office (Rue de l'Hôtel-de-Ville 5).
