Our Mediterranean Gourmet White Sea Salt comes from Provence where it has been harvested for centuries following Old Provencal traditions. In the heart of “Camargue”, the highly salted water from the Mediterranean sea is trapped in giant and very shallow pools where it evaporates slowly with the help of the “Mistral” wind and the blazing sun of Provence. When the water is completely gone, only white crystals of salt remain. Professionals called “Sauniers” using giant racks called “etelle” hand-harvest the white crystals or salt. Then the white salt is washed, crushed and sorted by type; fine or coarse and left to dry with the help of the Mistral. Our Coarse sea Salt is mostly used when boiling vegetables, meat, etc.. Our Gourmet White Sea Salt is unprocessed and comes from the Mediterranean region where it has been harvested for centuries using the same ancient technique. Due to their purity, our Coarse and Fine White sea salt enhance the flavors of all your favorite dishes and it is the healthiest choice of seasonings.

Have you ever wondered why most of the Vinaigrettes in the grocery store are made with 10, 20, sometimes even almost 30 ingredients? I remember growing up in Provence watching my mother whipping vinaigrettes before every single dinner. She would mix in a giant bowl, delicious extra virgin olive oil, a robust aged vinegar (the flavor would depend on the main dish), sea salt and pepper and voila! I decided to do the same thing for my family and friends more than 20 years ago here in this beautiful country. And Provence Kitchen® was born.
