Compound Butter at Elm RestaurantOne of our favorite local chefs, Luke Venner, treated us to a launch party at Elm Restaurant in downtown New Canaan. Luke runs an incredible restaurant right next door to us on Elm Street. Occasionally, when we feel the need to reward ourselves, we walk over to Luke’s for a leisurely lunch at one of his sidewalk tables. And we absolutely love the buzzing dinner scene! Luke has made a big splash in Fairfield County since he took over Elm a year ago.

For our launch party, Luke prepared (four) exquisite  compound butters: lavender honeycomb butter, maple chile butter, spring onion butter and beef reduction butter. Luke was the first chef to use one of our Churncraft Churns. As he says, you’ve got to do some things by hand if you care about the quality of your product. We were very pleased that he was so enthusiastic about our new churn.

Churncraft Butter ChurnsThe churn is fast and efficient, gives him full control over the churning process, and the butter is just the perfect consistency for experimenting with the sophisticated compound butters he likes to make. In addition, there is all the fresh buttermilk you get when you make your own butter.

I first met Marlon at a charity event, where a private dinner catered by him was auctioned off for a cool $14,000 (by the way, two of those dinners sold that night). Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter
Truffle Butter

by Jojo Frey December 04, 2017

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
