My dear Russian wife eats butter like it is going out of style and in fact butter on bread is a perfectly acceptable meal to her. I’ll have to try some of these other butters, she had settled upon Cabot Creamery butter (from Vermont and readily available here) and not had any complaints. Dairy products in general here are not typically as rich as in Russia though (and I’m guessing some other parts of Europe as well). It seems the milk you buy in the store in Russia isn’t quite as homogenized (some cream does rise to the top) and may have higher milkfat as well.

I also sort of thought you couldn’t screw up butter, but I’ve been eating this Cabot stuff for so long, I might no realize it is any different than other more mass-produced butters.

As a side note, Ukrainians (well, and some Russians also) eat “salo” – whipped or churned lard, often mixed with garlic and served on dark or black bread. You might not believe it, but its quite tasty, rather like a garlic butter. Most people wouldn’t know the difference if they were served this and not told what it is.

Everybody loves bread and butter, though, it’s a huge luxury for me as well some times :)

I agree with Ari, the bread and butter look amazing. I had some awesome Irish butter at the cheese festival. I had Steven get me 5 samples… 😛 I love butter too much…

I know next to nothing about poker but I’ve always wanted to learn. Congrats to the hubby!

You are one of the few food bloggers I know who can make bread and butter look so very, very good.

I buy it about once a year, for special occasions, and now am reminded that special occasions happen every day. I should celebrate more. In Portland, it’s a steady 70 degrees for a couple of weeks now, fluctuating a bit now and then. I’m so glad I live in a mild climate. Though I do miss the four seasons every now and then! We have only two: rainy season and sunny with occasional showers season.

If you eat butter regularly, you can buy a French butter keeper. I’ve seen them at Marshall’s. It’s like a mini-crock with a bowl upended into it where you store the butter. Add a bit of cold water to the bottom of the crock (oops, I typed it without an R and that would have really played around with your stats! :P). Anyway, the water and the bowl upended into the crock seals it, allowing you to store the butter at room temperature for up to a month. It usually sells for around $5 or so.

I like the Irish cream butter myself. But too decadent since I don’t eat butter that often. Surprised you didn’t make your homemade French bread to go with this. :)
