Fleur De Sel



Fleur De Sel

Fleur de sel, or ‘flower of salt’ for the non-Francophone, is a premium sea salt with delicate, flaky crystals. 

It is hand-harvested from salt ponds, where sea water is allowed to evaporate, leaving behind the prized crystals. Most prized of all is Guérande fleur de sel, which holds a PGI status (protected geographical indication).

This exquisite salt is known for its complex taste and aroma, with a subtle sweetness and a hint of minerality. 

Its fine texture, delicate crunch, and the fact that it dissolves more quickly than other salts, means that it’s used only as a finishing salt, sprinkled on dishes just before serving, and never in cooking.

Fleur de sel is valued by chefs and food enthusiasts for its ability to elevate both savoury and sweet dishes. It pairs exceptionally well with fresh tomato salad, grilled meat, and even caramel ice cream.
