It’s a culinary catalyst, an agent of change, a gastronomic
rock star. Ubiquitous in the world’s most fabulous cuisines,
butter is boss. Here, it finally gets its due.
After traveling across three continents to stalk the modern
story of butter, award-winning food writer and former pastry
chef Elaine Khosrova serves up a story as rich, textured,
and culturally relevant as butter itself.
From its humble agrarian origins to its present-day
artisanal glory, butter has a fascinating story to tell, and
Khosrova is the perfect person to tell it. With tales about
the ancient butter bogs of Ireland, the pleasure dairies of
France, and the sacred butter sculptures of Tibet, Khosrova
details butter’s role in history, politics, economics,
nutrition, and even spirituality and art. Readers will also
find the essential collection of core butter recipes,
including beurre manié, croissants, pâte brisée, and the
only buttercream frosting anyone will ever need, as well as
practical how-tos for making various types of butter at
home--or shopping for the best.
