Butter is wonderful. It gives flavor to a multitude of recipes, especially baked goods, and makes most dishes more satisfying, rich, and delicious. It is my firm belief that real butter is part of a healthy diet; you won’t see butter substitutes or any sort of chemical butters on this blog ever.
When it comes to butter, not any old butter will do. Discovered when I studied abroad in Galway many years ago, eaten on each trip home to Galway to visit my husband’s family, and now a permanent fixture in our fridge, Kerrygold butter is the gold standard. There is something creamier, fresher, and purer about Kerrygold, just something special that I have rarely found in other butters. Most likely, the fact that the milk for their products is sourced from small Irish farms has something to do with it
As I mentioned the other day, its flavor is so good, I can eat it alone on crackers.
From topping corn, to making a fish dish with Alaska Seafood, from homemade meatballs and sauce, to tasting at the Foodbuzz Festival, Kerrygold is a big part of my culinary adventures. We have been lucky to live in an Irish enclave in Boston, and Kerrygold has been widely available in our little markets for years. I have been happy to see Kerrygold products become more widely available and less expensive as they have entered the US market.
They not only sell premium butter, but as you may know, Kerrygold also makes a variety of cheeses including the incredible Dubliner with Irish Stout. Yum.
Why all the talk about Kerrygold, you ask?
Because it’s giveaway time! The kind people at Kerrygold are allowing me to gift a month’s supply of butter and cheese to one lucky Travel, Wine, and Dine reader!
