Having lived in Williamsburg for many years, I can attest that this recipe taste nothing like the Williamsburg Cheese Shop's (WCS) famous spread. If that is what you are looking for, then there are better copies available (see Savory and Simple for better copy). That said, this is still a good spread for sandwiches and as a bread dip. This has a bit more mustard flavor than the original recipe. Also, the WCS recipe won't have any sugar or garlic. Both flavors can be tasted in this version. If you want a good sandwich spread, give this a try just don't compare it to the original WCS recipe.

Fantastic! Love house dressing. I added a squirt of lemon and used Inglehoffer stone ground mustard (to eliminate the need for mustard seeds - it has whole seeds right in the bottle) at 1.5ish to what's recommended. Dangerously close to the real thing!

I'm told that the real House Dressing only contains 3 ingredients: mayo, Boar's Head mustard, and Sharwood steak sauce. Either way, I'm excited to try this!
