A couple of days ago, I visited the butter aisle of Lafayette Gourmet, the grocery part of les galeries Lafayette. I am trying to persevere in this butter hunt across Europe. 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!

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
