Nice! Thanks for posting. Making my own cultured butter is still on my list of things to do...

Nice video.  Looks like a stellar with a chef who loves what he is creating.

Michael:  Cultured butter is simple to make.  I made some a couple of winters ago.  Inoculation of the cream just takes overnight  and whipping the cream into butter until it separates out can be done in a home mixer - I used my Bosch compact. Rinsing can get messy. Remaining water is pressed out which is a bit more physically demanding but I found it all to be a bare basics simple process really requiring no special equipment.  A simple yet elegant gift to give to someone.  A perfect complement for one of your great panettone loaves.  :*)

Hi Janet.

Thanks for the encouragement and highlighting the simplicity. I am aware of the process, I'm just slow to try new things, perhaps because I like to master them. I will try it at some stage though - promise. I also was thinking about using it for panettone.

I TOTALLY understand :*)

If you do try it and add it to your panettone I would love to know if you can discern any difference.  I know I gave the butter I cultured to people to put ON bread assuming that the unique flavor and consistency would be lost in a loaf.

Great post showing good stuff.  Talent is obvious! 

Yum, I love eating good stuff.  Even pork, chicken, beef, cheese, milk, gluten, veggies, pasta, sweets, ice-cream, snails, fish, dumplings, stuff cooked in lard, stuff steamed, stuff boiled, stuff cooked with charcoal, I guess I just like to eat…. Oh,,,, I just cannot 'do' tofu or Himalayan pink salt.

Applause to people like in the video you posted!

Awesome!  Love his presentation on the piece of slate too.  Now I want to make my own butter.....add it to my list.

Nice video on good taste - seems to be spreading (sorry) - this is good...,

The world seems to be rediscovering things that bring taste pleasure back into vogue. Took long enough...,

Will the next frontier of discovery center on charcuterie?
