Leading British chocolatier Paul A Young has announced a new deal with the Cornish Sea Salt company as supplier for all recipes, including his multi-award-winning and best-selling Sea Salted Caramel, which has been voted the best Salted Caramel in the world.
Widely regarded as one of the world’s most exciting chocolatiers, Young will also be working with Cornish Sea Salt across other products and events and it is the first switch in suppliers in 13 years.
Three chocolates made using the salt have already won Academy of Chocolate Awards; Sourdough, Buttermilk and Sea Salt; Rosemary and Olive Oil Gianduja and the Chip Shop Caramel.
Young said he will be altering the recipes of all existing products that contain Sea Salt as well as developing NPD with the salt. He will also be experimenting with the wider Cornish Sea Salt range, which includes Smoked Sea Salt Flakes and salt flakes mixed with seaweed.
Cornish Sea Salt was founded in 2008 on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. Since then, the company has forged a global reputation for superb sea salt and new product development, while winning awards for their innovative approach to salt production.
“I’m always looking for the best ingredients to include in my chocolates and finally with Cornish Sea Salt, I feel I have found the best salt possible – I love using British products. The exceptional care Cornish Sea Salt take in collecting every flake aligns with the individual attention and dedication we put into each and every product in our kitchens. I’m really excited about what we create together,” said Young.
Young has three chocolateries in London including a flagship store on Wardour Street in Soho.
