Dark rich chocolate with fleur de sel
Vogueish by many things, Villa Orsula is a place where you can enjoy the finest of chocolate with Adriatic fleur de sel.
Chocolate with fleur de what?
Under the influence of the strong Adriatic sun, the sea surface creates a highly prized, thin crystal plate of salt which is pure and nutritionally different than ordinary sea salt - Fleur de sel (“Flower of salt” in French) - which is hand harvested by workers who scrape only the top layer of salt before it sinks to the bottom of large salt pans.
Particularly appreciated for its taste of calcium and magnesium sulphate, Fleur de sel is a ‘finishing’ salt; you don’t cook with it, but sprinkle it over dishes just before serving …
… or in the case of our partners, Nautilus chocolate patisseries, you combine it with the 70% cacao blend, creating a chocolate praline with a perfect balance of savoury and sweet, that crunches in your mouth.
If you wish to try this unusual delicacy this is one more reason to book Villa Orsula.
