Comments

Your comment about the quality of European butter is one of several that I have read recently and I am wondering how it differs from your usual butter? To us our is just usual and natural especially compared to the rubbishy low fat spreads that are proliferating here in UK at the moment.

This butter is FAN-TAS-TIC!!! I was going to email you about it but you have found it. I read about it online in another blog from a person in the UK and I was just walking in ET and there it was. Now if I could just find butter made from French Normandy cream. Can't wait for Whole Foods to open up.

Toni-Anne: European "style' butter in the US generally has more fat content, and that gives it a more luscious mouth feel (and even more calories!). It also has a bigger, rounder flavor than regular butter--although this butter is very delicate and has a very clear taste of cream that I find irresistible.

The packaging alone makes me want to buy some.
You should try making your own butter too...takes a second, and...woweewow, it can be good. (Depends on the cream you use of course...)

It has adorable brass rivets holding the extra thick wax paper together!
