Butter is one of the best mediums for flavor. Throughout the year, we love to celebrate the bounty of the land and eat seasonal food. Of course, we make plenty of exceptions, but we find it important to connect with the cycle of the seasons.
During the winter, Connecticut doesn’t have a lot of options for locally-sourced fresh herbs and produce. In these cold months, we try to focus on compound butters that incorporate a lot of dried spices, citrus and pantry items.
Honey, maple syrup, nuts, spice pastes, roots (like horseradish or ginger) are all great ingredients to use in your wintery compound butter. Follow us throughout the next couple of weeks to see what we come up with!

Last week, we had the privilege of hanging out and cooking with the amazing Silvia Baldini. There’s not much Silvia doesn’t do – a former high-powered art director in NYC, she’s now a local chef, entrepreneur, super mom and all-around #girlboss. Did I mention she won Chopped with “the best dessert on this show ever”? Needless to say, we were thrilled she agreed to be featured in the second installment of our Chef Series!
