Fleur de Sel|
For the finest Fleur De Sel from the Ile de Ré on France’s Brittany coast, saltmakers rake the purest, whitest crystals from the surface of the village’s salt ponds. The salt crystallizes naturally from evaporation by sun and wind. Within 24 hours of crystallization it is collected with the only tool authorized for raking, the traditional “lousse à fleur.” This delicate fleur de sel has a silken, flaky texture and mild, elegant flavor.
Sel Gris, or grey salt, from the Ile de Ré gets its distinct flavor and color from the native clay of France’s Brittany coast. Sun and wind evaporate seawater into a brine that crystallizes in direct contact with the clay that lines the salt ponds. It is harvested in the same way it has been for centuries, raked by hand. The resulting unwashed, unrefined, additive-free salt is moist and rich with a high mineral content.
Black Truffle Salt
Our Black Truffle Salt is a special blend of black truffles from Italy and hand-harvested sea salt. Known for their distinct aroma and flavor, these rare mushroom-like fungi are found within the roots of trees such as chestnut, oak or elm. The Italian black truffles for this salt were cultivated in small quantities and hand- raked one by one. Use it over egg dishes, pasta, risotto, roasted potatoes, pâté or foie gras, or sprinkled on buttered popcorn.
