Topic: Best butter

  Hi Diana/all,

I wanted some advice on the best butter to use for baking. I bought some at a wholesale store (cannot remember the brand name) and am not too pleased with it. It gave a very odd flavor and fragrance to some things I made (esp the toffee sauce). I wanted to know if there was a good brand of unsalted butter to use for baking.

  Hi Shimul,

A brand of unsalted butter that I use and I highly recommend is called Plugrá. Churned in old world tradition, Plugrá has a touch more butterfat and less moisture, which makes it richer, creamier and more flavorful than traditional American butter. The world’s greatest chefs use Plugrá in place of ordinary butter. It comes in 8 ounce salted and unsalted packages, and also is available in 1 pound salted or unsalted packages.

Plugrá can be found at Whole Foods Stores, D'angostino's, Trader Joe's, Garden of Eden, Gristedes/Red Apple Co., Pricechopper, Pathmark, Kings Supermarkets, Grace's Gourmet Market, and many other stores in the New York City area.

Please let me know if you find it and how it works in your baking. I know you won't be disappointed.

Sincerely, Diana
