How to delight a chef in training? Gift them the very best French ingredients to elevate their dish!

This truffle oil is so flavorful that they will only need a few drops to transform a meal from plain to heavenly. Maison Pebeyre, the company behind this oil, is the oldest French family business specializing in truffles, having started their activity in 1897. 

Wondering what's different about this salt? For starters, it was hand-harvested in Brittany from sea water, using the exact same technique from hundreds of years ago. The natural process to harvest the salt, leads to an unrefined condiment that has a much higher moisture content than ordinary sea salt. It also contains other minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which gives Fleur de Sel an unmatched delicate and earthy flavor. Discover more about it here.
