Seasonings and spices

Leonardi

Leonardi has been offering its legendary balsamic vinegar since 1971. It comes from the hills of Modena, a place where Lambrusco and Trebbiano grape varieties are grown and where grape must (an essential ingredient in Modena balsamic vinegar) is obtained. From harvest to packaging, the mythical Italian company is involved in every stage in producing this delicious, velvety brown condiment. Incredibly versatile, it provides the perfect balance of sweet and sour aromas and flavours to spice up your dishes.

La Route des Indes

An alchemist of scents and blender of rigorously selected pure spices, Route des Indes is a family business that is dedicated to the perfect combination of flavours. In this concept, created by Estelle and David Forte, you will be captivated by the sweet scent of the different spices, classified by family. Ready-to-use mixes, rare peppers and salts from around the world and flavoured salts (with olive, thyme or tomato basil) are also available.

La Maison de la Truffe

Maison de la Truffe has been the ‘jeweller of the culinary diamond’ for fine food lovers since its creation in 1932. Different varieties of truffles and related products are offered here. Whether it’s grated into fine lace, in pieces, or in slices, the truffle makes even the simplest hot or cold dishes shine. For food lovers who want to try them, we recommend Guérande truffle salt or truffle oil, which are easy to combine with other ingredients.

Teas

Widely enjoyed for many years, tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water. Tea refreshes in the heat of the sun, and nothing is more comforting than a cup of tea on blustery winter days. From the classic Earl Grey to mint tea and the most unusual flavours such as passionfruit, citrus or caramel, flavoured teas have become an absolute necessity.

Tea is not only drinkable; it can be used to flavour a variety of dishes and desserts. For example, you can use the tea to braise meat and vegetables or to marinate them before cooking. In China, duck and chicken are often smoked with tea in a special wok dish, and ochazuke is a Japanese dish made with rice that is served with a green tea infusion. If you want to set yourself apart by making original desserts and cakes, tea will be your friend. The trick is to infuse tea into melted butter when making your muffins or cakes.

Mariages Frères, Kusmi Tea, Dammann Frères and Palais des Thés all offer exceptional white, black and green teas. To learn more, check out our selection of the very best teas in the Home and Gourmet department at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann.
