Discover one of the favored ingredients of French chefs. Fleur de sel offers unmatched sophistication for finishing all subtler foods, sweets, dairy, and cooked vegetables.
This naturally flakey French sea salt features a faint rose tint and almost imperceptible scent of violets. Fleur de Sel de l'Île de Ré's fine crystals give a silken texture that puts this among the greatest of finishing salts anywhere. Mild, delicate, with the faintest hint of brine. Unsurpassed on broiled meats, fish, and vegetables. Unbelievable on French fries!
Fleur de sel is harvested in the traditional, labor-intensive way during the warmest months of the year when the heat evaporates the surface of the salt pond and collects a floating flower of salt on top of the water. This delicate salt is then hand harvested and packaged without further processing.
