A sprinkling of Fleur de Sel can transform a dish, and the basket features the cherished hand harvested salt from Brittany's M. Gilles Hervy. Pungent Tellicherry peppercorns can be used to flavor both sweet and savory dishes, and natural and unrefined Muscovado sugars from Mauritius are a favorite of chefs and bakers.
