Flower & Salt

  • $9.50

Selling fast  - 3 left

A variety of colourful flowers are blended with our fleur de sel to add a striking visual touch to your dishes. Favuzzi combined Italian salt, harvested in Trapani, with a bouquet of fragrant flowers to create this unique, exceptional seasoning. Ideal as a finishing salt, it can be sprinkled over fresh cheese or white fish, or mixed into a risotto or a bean soup. 

Our salt is sourced from the Trapani and Paceco nature reserve in Sicily, an area comprising nearly 1,000 hectares, home to salt flats for many centuries. Today, the salt is still harvested partly by hand, following an ancient method, and crushed using wind energy, thanks to the many windmills still standing.  

The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.
