Les Liaisons “Heureuses”

  • Knead sweet butter with some pre-prepared wasabi.  Just before serving, melt over grilled herring or a pork chop.
  • Mix sweet butter with some hazelnut powder.  Melt over steamed sole fillets.
  • Serve vanilla butter with sautéed scallops or in a sauce to go along with lobster.

Some Lovely Butter Harmony

  • When emulsifying a sauce, the butter should always be whisked in off of the heat.
  • A knob of butter added to some warm custard and emulsified with a wand mixer will always give it incomparable lightness.
  • For a vinaigrette, replace the oil by some butter melted slowly in a small saucepan.  Use it to season steamed vegetables.
