Elaine Khosrova takes the reader on an engrossing journey through the history of butter—from its disputed origins in the Neolithic era to its veneration among Anglo-Saxon and Vedic cultures. She recounts butter's battle for supremacy with margarine and ponders the enduring sex appeal of the milkmaid. The book is enlivened by Khosrova's knack for digging up odd facts and her irrepressible enthusiasm. ("It is impossible not to love someone who makes toast for you," she writes). The final third of the book includes recipes for making everything from brioche to beurre blanc to butterscotch pudding.
