Delicate, moist and beautiful, Fleur de Sel is known as “the caviar of salts” by chefs around the world. The quintessential finishing salt choice for fine foods and used by cooks worldwide, Fleur de Sel by Artisan® is one of the most important artisanal salts in any gourmet salt selection. Sought out by consumers everywhere, this salt is the result of a cool evening wind gently blowing across the surface of French salt ponds in Guérande. The soft crystals blossom quickly and are gathered by hand using traditional wooden tools in the centuries-old method. This careful 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. No salt shelf should be without a high-quality Fleur de Sel option.
