Senf / Mustard

It's not the only thing that I'm missing from switzerland, but still. I wondered if any of you could help me out. I do miss the good old Thomy senf here (in the UK) and would like to find something similar, but have no idea what to go for. I use Colemans powdered for cooking, and I find Dijon too strong for my vinaigrette.
Any ideas?

Thanks, but I was really looking to substitute with something from here. I guess my two children could send me a couple of tubes but, being lateteens/early twenties, they have other priorities

TiMow, thanks, I'll give that one a try.

Don't rush out just yet - I'm 10 yrs behind the times.

There's a reference in the article re. Waitrose own label equivalent, or maybe something like:

but I don't know this product personally.

Re: Senf

How ironic, I seem to remember a whole thread not so long ago where people here were desperately trying to get Coleman's mustard.

Re: Senf

That's what 'exile' does to you. Funny thing is, those looking for Coleman in CH will be desperate for Thomy when they go back to CH- having developed a taste for it, and so on. Arrgghh for the grass to be greener - and the mustard tastier.

Re: Senf / Mustard

Thanks for your suggestions and your very kind offer Odile. I have found a french mustard that smells quite good so I think I'm sorted for now. I have tried it in my vinaigrette and its nice. I like to season my meat with a little mustard when I make rahmschnitzel, and I love the smell of that when it's frying so I guess that will be the ultimate test!
