Delicate, moist and crunchy—Fleur de Sel is known as “the caviar of salts” for a reason. Widely regarded as one of the best of all finishing salts and used by cooks worldwide in cuisines and dishes galore, French Fleur de Sel is one of the most treasured gourmet salts in any kitchen. The result of a cool evening wind gently blowing across the surface of salt ponds in Guérande, France, paper-thin crystals blossom quickly and are gathered early in the morning using traditional wooden tools. This tender harvesting process leaves the salt crystals intact and helps them retain their natural moisture, making the salt an exquisite addition to everything, from steamed vegetables and salads to grilled fish and quiches, to salted caramels and chocolate confections. Use a pinch as a finishing salt to top dishes before they get to your table, or add it to sauces and soups and watch it melt evenly and impart its crisp, balanced flavor.
