I <3 Kerrygold

 

kerrygold

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!

Entering is simple, just leave a comment here telling me your favorite Kerrygold product, or if you have never tried one, visit their website and let me know what you would like to try.

Then if you have a blog, include a link back to this post in your next post. Or if you don’t have a blog, link back to this post on your Facebook or Twitter page. Easy, right? I will choose a winner on Sunday, December 12.

Good luck!

    I was going to say their salted butter but I think I’m in love with that aged cheddar. I retweeted your giveaway as I haven’t baked anything else yet to blog about.

    I just had some Kerry Gold Cheese for the first time a couple of months ago. I savored every morsel of that creamy goodness. What a wonderful giveaway.

    I would *love* the Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese to make their “Dubliner Fig & Walnut Focaccia” recipe! It looks fantastic & would be perfect for an upcoming party.

    I love Kerry Gold butter – and like you I do NOT use butter subs. Not a big fan – especially when the good stuff tastes.so.good!

    My favorite is their butter with garlic and herbs but I can’t always find it. I’d love to try their dubliner with irish stout though. Sounds yummy!

    And I tweeted

    I haven’t tried the butter or the cheese yet and have been meaning to for so long! When I finally do try some, I think the Dubliner cheese is the first on my list :-)

    I’m with you! Kerrygold is a mainstay in my fridge, too. For my holiday baking this year, I bought Straus butter (since it’s local to Northern California) and I’m kind of regretting it. There’s something special about Kerrygold.

    PS. How great is is that they use this stuff on Aer Lingus?!

    PPS. I am never as happy as when they are sampling Kerrygold cheese at Whole Foods.

    PPPS. I was super sad that Kerrygold wasn’t at Foodbuzz this year.

    I love Kerry Gold butter so very much! It reminds me of my cousin Noreen’s homemade brown bread that she makes for us every time we visit them in Tipperary. I usually average about 20 loaves of brown bread and probably 10 tubs of Kerry Gold butter on my Tipp trips. No big deal haha.

    Love it and love this giveaway – thanks!

    We go through several kilos of Kerrygold butter this time of year. We are busy baking all our favorite family recipes for Swedish and Norwegian Christmas cookie. They quality and higher fat content of Kerrygold makes the cookies taste just like they do back in the “old country.”

    I adore Dubliner! But if given the chance, I’d try the cheese n beer combination any day. Great idea to combine the two for Irish Stout cheese.
