Product Description

SKU FR-1212

The caper, which originated in the Orient, is a wild plant in the Capparidaceae family that grows in arid and sunny Mediterranean regions. It grows in the wild in the form of thorny bushes and can be cultivated in plains and mountains. Capers are neither fruits nor seeds; they are small flower buds, harvested before they open. These small condiments release vinegar aromas and a slightly sharp flavor. Albert Menes capers benefit from the "non-pareil" name reserved for the smallest capers, with a diameter of 5-7 mm. These are followed by "surfine" capers, with a diameter of 7-8 mm, and "capucine" capers, with a diameter of 8-9 mm. Considered the best of all the varieties that exist, non-pareil capers have very pronounced aromas of fine vinegar, but also extremely delicate flavours and a pleasantly firm texture. Picked very young by hand, between June and August, the capers selected by Albert Menes are particularly firm and fragrant.

Albert Menes is a premium gourmet brand from Brittany, France. It all begins in 1921 in Landerneau in Brittany. Albert Menes rediscovers the gourmet pleasures of his Breton childhood, having set sail in the navy in the early 1900s. On his return, still dreaming of fragrances from elsewhere and eager for new experiences, this refined gourmet resolves to introduce Parisians to the flavors of the provinces. In 1921, he founds the company Albert Menes. Importing rare, specialty groceries from all over the world, he delights the palates of enlightened amateurs. The company has made it its mission to bring a touch of the special to everyday life, offering exceptional, artisanal spices, regional and global specialities, traditional and unique recipes, and jams, and all this in compliance with the know-how and secrets of the trade.
