Our fleur de sel has a delicate taste, airy texture and fine grains that melt in the mouth.
Our fleur de sel is the perfect finishing touch for sophisticated dishes, whether salmon en papillote, lobster or stuffed zucchini flowers. It is equally good with simple fare like green salads or seasonal tomatoes. And don't forget dessert -- we're thinking caramel and brownies, of course!
Our salt is sourced from the Trapani and Paceco nature reserve in Sicily, an area comprising nearly 1,000 hectares, home to salt flats for many centuries. Today, the salt is still harvested partly by hand, following an ancient method, and crushed using wind energy, thanks to the many windmills still standing.
The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.
