Fleur de Sel
Anyone out there knowledgeable about brands of fleur de sel that are available retail? I've gotten the Gilles HERVY fleur de sel du pays Guerandais, and it was okay, but not nearly as good as a locally packaged fleur de sel that I had picked up on a trip to Camargue a few years ago. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Not French, but English, Maldon - flaky (as opposed to small rocky crystals that need to be ground) - imparts wonderful texture & taste. I'm so addicted I carry a bag of it in my purse everywhere I go. And get really upset when I forget it at $8 a bag! Wonderful folded into soft sweet butter & re-chilled then slathered on the best bread you can find... Have seen it elsewhere in unusual places (ie. Sendick's in Milwaukee - I live in Orange County, CA) for $5.99.
