With over thirty types of butter for sale, I had a hard time choosing just a few. So rather than do a classic butter tasting (which I have decided to save for La Grande Epicerie) I decided to try out some compound butter. Le Beurre Bordier, to be exact.
The three I purchased to sample are butter with smoked salt flakes, cayenne pepper butter and butter with yuzu. Cannot wait to try and report back!
