Read my full review on my blog at Mystereity Reviews
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to read and review a cookbook that recommended using a high fat butter. While that book went into a little bit of detail on what constituted high fat butter, I realized I still had a lot of questions after a discussion on my review about how to find high fat butter. So when I requested this book, I hoped to learn more about how to choose a good butter for baking and got a whole lot more.
Butter: A Rich History, by Elaine Khosrova, explores not only the mechanics of making butter, but also the sociological, biological and the cultural aspects of butter and answered questions I didn't even know I had, from which cows give the richest milk to the best way to store butter. The recipes included in the book sound delicious and look easy to make and I can't wait to give a few of the recipes a try.
Overall, Butter is a very well researched and entertaining book that will make you better appreciate the rich, thick, creamy slab of butter you slather on your toast.
Thank you to Algonquin Books for the ARC to read in exchange for my honest review
