WHAT ARE FINISHING BUTTERS????
(A question we get asked a lot)
Finishing butters are a classic culinary tool. During Chef Brian's apprenticeship in France with Roget Verge he learned how to prepare exquisite French Compound Butters (maitre d'hotel) used as a finishing technique referred to in France as monter au beurre--mounting with butter--something we have found to be extremely useful and successful in the home kitchen.
