Let’s hear from our winner, Lisa de Perio!

Lisa dePerio - Maille Mustard winner

How did you come up with the recipe?

In one week, I tried a new French bakery in Dallas that had amazing ham and cheese croissants. That same week, I went to a Turkish restaurant by work and had baklava for dessert.  I love twisting recipes so I decided to create a savory baklava using prosciutto and gruyere as the savory filling.  Also, I’m in love with pistachios, so I thought this would be the perfect addition for the nutty crunch.

Why is this one of your favorite recipes to make during the holidays?

This is a crowd-pleasing appetizer that works for even the pickiest of eaters.  It’s easy to make but has a “high-impressive” factor.  Both kids and foodies alike love this recipe.

How does the Maille Dijon Mustard make this recipe special?

Maille Dijon mustard adds a delicious, creamy tanginess to this dish.  I love how the dijon mustard is the perfect complement to the gruyere and prosciutto.  

Do you have any plans for the prize package? 

Yes – I’m going to continue my most favorite hobby of experimenting with new kitchen gadgets, discovering new ingredients, and recreating old recipes.  I will look so chic in my new Maille apron and accessories!

Also, I LOVE Williams-Sonoma so I can’t wait to treat myself to a new gadget….maybe a great new KitchenAid attachment or Sous Vide? SO Exciting!

Do you have an award-winning tips or recipe contest advice?

The best thing I can say is be true to what you love to eat!  Also, I have a great group of friends who love to taste-test and give feedback, so definitely use friends and family to perfect a creation! The best friends are the most honest friends 🙂

Thanks so much Lisa!
