Fleur de Sel de Guerande - Recognized as the finest salt in the world, and the “caviar of salts,” Fleur de Sel is a light delicate crystal that blossoms to the top of salt ponds in only the most pristine of weather conditions. The salt is then hand harvested using careful and experienced methodology to collect the treasured flakes. Fleur de Sel is cherished for its unique “snowflake” shape, taste, & texture that dissolves slowly, imparting completely balanced flavor. True “Fleur de Sel” must come from the Guerande region of France- recognized for its superior excellence in producing premium sea salt. Fleur de Sel is best enjoyed as a finishing salt used right before dining to best accentuate the unique characteristics of this salt.
Fumee de Sel - Imagine starting with Fleur de Sel, considered the finest salt in the world, and then slowly smoking it in aged Chardonnay oak wine barrels used for years to age vintage wines. As it smokes, the subtle oak and wine flavoring fuses with the sea salt crystal- creating a delicately smoked flake that greatly and wonderfully enhances meals. You will instantly understand why this extraordinary salt creates the perfect finish to any meal; particularly with lighter meats, soups, and vegetables.
Tamise de Guerande - Originating from the same salt ponds as the Fleur de Sel, Tamise is a wonderfully moist, textured sea salt with a slightly coarse finish- making it a perfect finishing for breads, casseroles, roasts, or fish.
