David Lebovitz (2010) “Here you’ll find a page-long list of black peppers, several varieties of fleur de sel, tubes and bottles of aromatic oils, lots of spice blends, as well as twelve grand crus of vanilla beans. But what I made a beeline for were the salted butter caramels. Sold in handy little tins for just €5, these chewy caramels come direct from Brittany, where salted butter caramel is a religion and these live up to the hype.”
