Anyone who knows me well knows I consider most foods "butter delivery vehicles." For butter lovers like me, Elaine Khosrova delves into the history of this age-old condiment (for it is an ancient food), including the "margarine wars" and how America came to demonize animal fats and embrace decades of low-fat dieting. She brings readers up to speed on recent scientific changes in attitude toward butter and includes some wonderful recipes. Butter is technical and well researched, yet written in terms any butter-loving layman can understand, full of wholesome butter goodness, personal experience, and interesting facts from around the world. A delicious read!
