Our salt for one kitchen : yours.
Our range was designed to let you rediscover the history of the salt, starting from the most important : the kitchen ! Our products are an invitation to bring back this ancestral salt into your daily cooking :
Coarse salt for preparing
It is the main product of the harvest, amounting up to 90% of the total tonnage.
Composed of large white crystals, it also has a greyish tint that comes from being in contact with clay, which the bottom of the salt marshes are made out of. It full effect in cooking is found when it is given the time to dissolve into your dishes, in boiling water, or any sauce or stew.
Fine salt for seasoning
It is your daily tool. Daily cooking is rarely made of traditional 6-hour-stew.To handle simple things,
or to face urgency you can rely on fine salt.
Fine salt is just a derivative from coarse salt, which is grinded. The crystals turned into grain, the chef can harness more easily the power of the salt and the quantity that need to be put in to achieve the perfect taste.
It sums up in one simple way : season. taste. repeat until satisfied !
"fleur de sel" for the final touch
It is the best part of the harvest, the most noble one, that represents less than 10% of the yearly production.
Flower of salt is made of very subtle crystals, almost flat, similar to snowflakes.
Because it is harvested at the surface of the water, it does not have the greyish tint of coarse and fine salt, and remains perfectly white.
It is used when served directly on the plate, just before eating. Strictly speaking, one could almost say that the flower of salt does not really bring extra salt flavor, but just brings nuance and depth to the actual flavors of the dish.
One year ago, you discovered our aluminium salt boxes. Their design was based on 3 specials criteria : The first two were to resist corrosion of salt and to bring back an authentic and traditional design. The third one was to last through time. We didn’t want to make a use-it-and-throw-it product, even if aluminium is one of the most recycled metal of earth. Our boxes are resistant enough to last five or maybe ten cycles (if not more!). So today we close the loop by bring to you our refill bags. Made in France, out of paper, they are here to allow you to easily refill the boxes your own, and continue the journey.
Traditional salt grinder
This traditional salt grinder was made out of wood in the eastern parts of France, in the Jura. The grinding-mecanism in ceramics is naturally resistant to corrosion and will not deteriotate with salt in time, as many grinder do.
