Familiar with single estate tea and single estate olive oil? Well now you can buy single-udder butter! (Thanks to Laura for spreading the word)
At Stone Barns, chef and owner Dan Barber serves ‘single-udder butter’: butter made from the pasteurised milk of a specific cow. Chloe, for example, is an alpha-type cow who chases after the best grass. Her butter is typically a darker yellow than Sunshine’s – an erratic, moody cow.
Many chefs are gaining interest in unprocessed, untreated ingredients because they often taste better. Single-udder-advocate Barber certainly seems to think so!
