Sea Salt harvested in Île de Ré, France.



Traditional French "fleur de sel" is collected off the coast of Brittany but also in Noirmoutier and Île de Ré (an island off the west coast of France near La Rochelle). It is not used in place of salt during the cooking process. Instead, it is added just before serving, like a garnish, a "finishing salt," to boost the flavor of eggs, fish, meat, vegetables, chocolate, and caramel.
