Salt and sweet, the combination is popular today. It is commonly used within the food industry as fillings for cakes, tarts, confectionery and other tasty treats.
But where did this phenomenon come from?
The answer is France – chocolatier Henri Le Roux was part of a family of talented chefs, who owned a pastry shop. When he was ready to fly the nest, him and his partner moved to Brittany; a place famed for it’s incredible salted butter.
The perfect recipe for a salty, but sweet caramel with crushed nuts. The caramel was created using salted butter, and he won ‘Best Sweet in France’ for his amazing invention.
