Reviews of interest
- David Lebovitz (2011) Now his shop has landed in Paris… they’ve expended their range of flavors so you’ll not only find traditional caramels, such as his famous C.B.S. (caramel-beurre-salé), tarte Tatin (caramel-apple), and citron vert (lime), but also tender little squares melded with black tea and yuzu-matcha.”
- Chocolate & Zucchini (2011) “a chocolate bite he calls Soizig: praliné is a finely ground mixture of nuts and sugar with a little cocoa or cocoa butter, covered in chocolate. This version includes blé noir (buckwheat) and the subtlety of the chocolate/buckwheat pairing is heavenly.”
- David Lebovitz (2006)”M. Le Roux is a very kind man, who basically changed the way pastry chefs, glaciers, and bakers everywhere think about caramel: he created caramel-buerre-salé (caramel-salt-butter), which he simply calls C.B.S. And they are truly divine.”
