"The delicious kitchen staple we so often take for granted is not merely a stick tucked into our refrigerator door. It's a culinary catalyst, an agent of change, a gastronomic rock star. From its accidental invention in a long-ago herder's pouch to its ubiquitous presence in the world's most fabulous cuisines, butter is boss. Now, it finally gets its due. Award-winning food writer and chef Elaine Khosrova serves up a story as rich, textured, and culturally relevant as butter itself. From the ancient butter bogs of Ireland to the sacred butter sculptures of Tibet, Butter is about so much more than food. Khosrova details its surprisingly vital role in history, politics, economics, nutrition, even spirituality and art. From its humble agrarian origins to its present-day artisanal glory, butter has a fascinating story to tell, and Khosrova is the perfect person to tell it. She even includes the essential collection of carefully developed core butter recipes, from beurre manié and croissants to pâte brisée and the perfect buttercream frosting, and provides practical how-tos for making various types of butter at home--no churning necessary"--… (mere)

Interesting enough, but wouldn't read anything else by her. Too opinionated. ( )

I loved this book. I'm so excited about butter right now that I can't stand it. Butter: A Rich History has science, history, cultural information, and recipes! It was a fun and fascinating read, and I can't wait to try out some of the dishes from the back.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via a Goodreads giveaway. Many thanks to all involved in providing me with this opportunity. ( )

Surprised at the love for this one. I was surprised when learning the news that margarine was now considered MORE unhealthy than butter. I grew up eating it whenever I had bread/toast because supposedly butter was BAD for you. It never really bothered me but at the same time I really didn't mind when butter for bread was available at a restaurant or at someone else's house, etc.
 
So enter this book about butter. The history and origins, how it's made today and how that has changed, its uses (which aren't always for consumption/cooking/baking/etc. purposes!), and its place in society. The book also includes recipes and a few pictures of stuff ranging from tools to Tibetan butter carvings (!). Some of it was quite interesting to read about.
 
But I agree with lots of people who found the writing not so great. It's dull and while the author clearly has enthusiasm for her subject, I can't say it really transferred into making the writing more interesting for the reader. I thought my interest in the subject would sustain me but I guess my enthusiasm for the topic wore off, as quirky as it is to write about as an entire book.
 
It might have been better as a magazine long read. There are a bunch of recipes that take up a third of the book if you're interested. I'd skip this one or borrow from the library if you're *that* passionate about it. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I've read a few chapters, but it requires a lot of attention. ( )

I love reading about the history of food and cooking, and this is a fascinating, in-depth look at butter- mostly, but not exclusively, bovine.

Approximately 2/3rds of the book is devot3d to the history of butter in human societies.

The rest includes an extensive and seductive assortment of butter-centric recipes, plus various appendices with artisan butter producers, a bibliography, and other notes. It is now heading into winter here, and I am excited to start trying to make some of the laminated doughs like puff pastry, croissants, and the like!

Very recommended for fans of food history and, of course, BUTTER. ( )
