Flavored Butters: How to Make Them, Shape Them, and Use Them as Spreads, Toppings, and Sauces (50)


Flavored Butters: How to Make Them, Shape Them, and Use Them as Spreads, Toppings, and Sauces (50) Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flavored butters, also called compound butters, have a multitude of uses. They make a plain baguette or artisan loaf come alive with flavor; they complement a hearty breakfast muffin or delicate scone; they serve as quick-fix sauces for a piece of fish, meat or a bowl of pasta; and they brighten an artichoke or a serving of green beans in surprising ways.

We often see flavored butters as an elegant touch to bread service in restaurants, but there are plenty more varieties and uses that are easy for home cooks to use in their kitchens as well. Lucy Vaserfirers Flavored Butters is the first and only book that provides the recipes and techniques for homemade flavored butters. In fifty recipes, Vaserfirer offers up ideas that are amazingly quick to execute in the kitchen and transformative in the flavor they impart.

The recipes cover both sweet and savory applications, and each recipe has advice about what the butter is best used on. In addition to the recipes, there are plenty of photographs to illustrate, and ample tips and tricks, like the perfect temperature at which to serve the butters, how to serve, and the tools needed for making stunning presentations with flavored butters.


50 recipes for sweet and savory butters for use as spreads, sauces and marinades.
