I've long resisted participating in celebrity special dishes because I knew it could get weird. And sure enough, it was awkward to hear my name recited as a June special at American Sardine Bar, as in, "we're featuring the Craig LaBan 2-on-1," and, "You want a Craig LaBan?" I agreed in this case because few local chefs relate to my deep craving for a true Detroit Coney chili dog like Scott Schroeder, a fellow native Detroiter. And he went straight to the heart of the task, literally, by doctoring up genuine National Coney chili sauce (beanless, with subtle Greek spice)

Walk the mustard aisle of any store, and "D" will stand for Dijon, a testament, perhaps, to the popularity of all those Grey Poupon commercials. But "D" also means Düsseldorf, an oft-overlooked style that has multiple culinary uses beyond garnishing a hot dog. "Düsseldorf has much better flavor than Dijon," says chef Walter Staib of Philadelphia's City Tavern restaurant. "But it doesn't have the sex appeal of Dijon, or the pedigree. " "I cook with mustard all the time. The Düsseldorf has more flavor," adds Staib, host of the public television series A Taste of History.

Prepared mustards range widely in texture, color, and flavor because mustard-makers have long sought to put their own unique spin on the product. Producers choose the mustard seed - white, brown, black - and determine how finely the seeds will be ground or crushed. For some, the choice is governed by personal taste or commercial appeal. For others, the seed is determined as a matter of law. To make prepared mustards, the ground seeds are mixed with a liquid - often water, white wine, beer, or vinegar - to form a paste.
