Carrot Cake with Bitterman’s Chocolate Fleur de Sel

by The Meadow Hudson

Bitterman’s Chocolate Fleur de Sel is an infused fleur de sel that’s been blended with chocolate. This salt, like many infused salts, is made using a fleur de sel (in this case, our house Fleur de Sel from Guatemala). It is then combined with high quality chocolate. This original recipe was concocted in 2008 by The Meadow’s owner Mark Bitterman, our house Selmelier and master infusion-mixer. This chocolate salt has a strong chocolate aroma with hints of cocoa that gives your food a deep richness and full-bodied flavor. The small, irregular crystals dissolve in waves across the palate, lending a delicate chocolate chip-like crunch to any dish. Sprinkle it on sweets, like strawberries and cream, hazelnut scones, cupcakes, fruit parfaits or homemade granola. Or anywhere you might make a mole, such as tender beef or chicken.

Or try using up your lingering winter carrots and spring into summer with this rooty Carrot Cake recipe!
