The Kerrygold Family of Cheeses – Part Three – Kerrygold Butters
March 31, 2009
Conor O’Donovan, who works for Kerrygold, came to The Lady’s kiosk recently to sample the Dubliner cheese and one of the Kerrygold Butters. He graciously gave The Lady a few coupons and she used one to buy Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter.
Now The Man will only use this butter on his Dave’s Killer Bread (the best bread in the entire humankind world) and other food that is enhanced by the addition of butter. Like The Man, I can’t think of a single food that cannot be “enhanced” by Kerrygold Butter. The Lady agrees; however, since she went on The Diet (she has now lost 67 pounds…13 more and she will have lost Lara Flynn Boyle…who really needs to eat a sandwich…with mayo…that is one skinny broad, in this feline’s humble opinion), she doesn’t eat butter.
And you know what that means…more for me and The Man…
Kerrygold Butter is not just any everyday butter…this is butter. Once again, terroir rears its lovely head and makes another divine manna from Ireland. This butter is creamier, brighter in colors…all that beta carotene…and spreads as smoothly as Hollywood gossip. You can do anything with it; spread on crusty baguettes; use it in sauces; bake with it…you’ll never have a flakier croissant than the one made using Kerrygold Butter…hey, just throw a little straight Kerrygold Butter in my chow dish and this feline foodie will have a licking good time…not to be confused with The Lady’s friend, Nate and his “lick and run theory”.
Kerrygold makes its butter salted or unsalted and one with Garlic and Herbs.
This feline foodie gives Kerrygold Butters 4 out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).
Serving suggestions: In addition to those listed above, melt a pat on your favorite steak; toss it with pasta; melt it on steamed veggies; schmear it on a bagel; use it to make garlic bread; spread it with Ficoco on raisin toast…the possibilities are endless.
Source: Cow’s milk from Dairy Cattle that graze freely (for Nate) on Irish grass.
Before I go…let me leave you with a parting thought…do you know why leprechauns wear green undies on St. Patrick’s Day? To protect their lucky charms, of course…
