Fleur de sel sea salt derives its name from the French, referring to the natural salt “bloom” topping the seawater evaporating in marshy pools. That bloom depends on just the right combination of terrain, sunshine and slow, steady winds. Once it forms, if it forms, harvesters skim the delicate salt crust with specially designed wooden rakes. Even along the coast of Brittany, with just the right conditions for fleur de sel production, the harvest rarely exceeds 2 pounds per day. Incredibly pure, fleur de sel has a high moisture content, up to 10 percent, as compared with 0.5 percent for table salt. Why is that important? The extra moisture enables the salt crystals to stick together, snowflake-style, which means they linger longer on the tongue, allowing for a more intense perception of saltiness. In addition, the unique evaporation process results in higher magnesium and calcium content, giving fleur de sel not only an oceanic flavor (even in comparison with other sea salts), but also a softness, lacking any bitter aftertaste.
Because fleur de sel is as much about texture as taste, it is ideal as a finishing condiment, whether topping grilled salmon just before serving or complementing the sugar crust on crème caramel. Fleur de sel is wildly popular as a dessert topping these days, partly because of its textural interest and partly because a touch of sodium triggers glucose sensors in the gut, to enhance the sweet experience.
Although areas of Portugal, Spain, the Canadian Pacific and Mexico harvest fleur de sel, France holds sway as the key source, an honor held since ancient Romans first stumbled across salt-harvesting Gauls. Pliny the Elder called the Gallic harvest “flos salis.”
Fleur de Sel salt is renowned worldwide by chefs as the best sea salt for culinary because of its delicate flavor, moist texture, and high mineral content.

Describing the taste of ras el hanout is tricky, because this North African seasoning not only varies from purveyor to purveyor but also relies on synergy to achieve its unique bang for the buck. A blend of many different spices, in varying proportions, ras el hanout should warm the palate, with no single spice, no single flavor note-taking prominence. Instead, each ingredient should enhance the others’ flavors. You’ll find warming, slightly sweet, pungent, floral and aromatic notes.
Ras el hanout’s history dates back to the ancient spice trade. North Africa was a prime crossroads for all sorts of exotic flavorings that would eventually traverse the Mediterranean and enter Europe. North African spice merchants would reserve the best of these exotic exports and blend them into their own house seasonings. “Ras el hanout” is Arabic for “head of the shop,” another way of saying a top-shelf item. Some historians claim the term also refers back to Ethiopia, where “ras” means king. Thus ras el hanout qualifies as a royal spice blend.
