Tiny, white to pink pyramid-shaped crystals - these are the most precious harvest from the Piran Salt Pans. They form on the surface of the brine only when the air is still, for the slightest ripple disturbs them. At harvest time the saltmakers use a special webbed spatula to remove them gently from the surface of the saltfields, where they form in a thin layer. Fleur de Sel enhances salads, carpaccios, seafood specialities and other culinary masterpieces that are seasoned after serving. The quality of Piran FLEUR DE SEL exceeds even the prized French Fleur de Sel variety.
Fleur de Sel is used by gourmets and in original cuisine as an indispensable condiment whose flavour harmoniously complements any dish.Only in this way can a dish benefit from the flavour and gentle aroma of these delicate crystals. It has pride of place on the table - like the best extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar.
