C B S as in Caramel & Beurre Sale (Caramel made with Salty Butter), a specialty of Henri Le Roux.
Olivier Magny in Le Caramel au Beurre Sale (February 3) writes:
Funny how much history you can learn from a little book like Caramel & Beurre Sale (Cherche Midi, French only) by Henri Le Roux in collaboration with Benedict Beauge.
I never heard about many of the facts and traditions he shares with us even though I was born in Brittany and grew up there.
Since I never learned or spoke Breton, I did not know that a favorite, Kouign Amann means butter cake.
Amann is the Breton word for butter if I'm not mistaken.
For most of us, it is hard to imagine a time when butter was a luxury.
I will share more of Henri Le Roux secrets and knowledge of local history in an interview with the C B S man within the next few weeks.
