Golden Glen Creamery Farmstead Butter

May 28, 2010

The Lady recently met Kim, the GM at Golden Glen Creamery in Bow, Washington. The creamery had a Farmer’s Market “emergency” searching for personnel to man or woman one of its booths. The Lady, after obtaining my permission, of course, posted a “Help Wanted” on our blog to assist in finding the right cheesy person. As a thank you, Kim sent several of their cheeses and their farmstead butter.

Last night, as part of our cheese plate, The Lady served the butter for enjoyment on the fresh, hot baguette that accompanied the cheeses and… my, oh, my… this is butter.

I have to tell you, my loyal readers, The Man was especially obnoxious last night… as opposed to his regular obnoxiousness, which can rise to some fairly high levels, especially when he and The Lady put that bubbly stuff in my ear that hurts… but I digress…

The Man swooned and then planted his own personal flag in this butter; he just wasn’t going to share with The Lady or your favorite Feline Foodie (that would be me). Finally, The Lady took over, as she so often does (those of you who know her won’t find this surprising) and told The Man that either he shared or she would withhold something called marital affection. The Man suggested that would also punish her; but I noticed he backed off and allowed The Lady and me to partake in this heavenly, creamy, sweet spread.

Golden Glen Farmstead Butter is made of cream, milk and salt – no additives; no preservatives; no nothing; nada; zipola…

We like butter around the manse and I have a sneaking suspicion that we may be making monthly pilgrimages to Bow, Washington… the Mecca of the best butter in the Pacific Northwest…

I give Golden Glen Farmstead Butter 4 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).

Serving Suggestions: Anytime you need/want butter, think of Golden Glen. You can spread it on anything, including butter (just kidding) and you can cook with it – it will make anything you bake, sauté or cook all the better for adding Golden Glen Farmstead Butter.

I will be reviewing the other fine cheeses of Golden Glen Creamery, located in Bow, Washington in the next few days… stay tuned.

FTC Full Disclosure – The cheesemaker/manufacturer sent me their product, hoping I would review the product/cheese.

[…] This cheese has a rich, deep yellow color (ingredients include annatto, a derivative of the achiote tree, used to produce a yellow to orange food coloring) with lots of well-formed baby eyes. It has a creamy texture and mild taste. While it works well on a cheese plate, I think it would do better paired with a nice juicy slice of Foster Farms’ Gallus gallus between two slabs of crusty bread and grilled to perfection with Golden Glen Creamery Farmstead Butter… […]
