‘If you want to be a good cook, a joyful cook, you need to understand butter.’

Butter: A Celebration is a joyous immersion in all things butter, revelling in its alchemical power to transform almost any dish, from good to transcendent.

Award-winning food writer Olivia Potts takes us on a grand tour of butter and its many varied applications, from old school chicken Kiev to millefeuille, from oysters Rockefeller to Iranian tahdig. This is a book to be savoured for its wonderful writing, as well as for its irresistible recipes and expert introduction to patisserie, too. Full of history, anecdotes and, of course, delicious recipes resplendent with butter, it includes:

*Turkish eggs with yoghurt and chill butter
*Butter-basted rib eye steak
*Steamed artichoke with anchovy butter
*Grilled kippers with horseradish butter
*Buttermilk pancakes
*Sticky gingerbread
*French salted butter biscuits
*Brioche feuilletée
*Damson plum crumble
