    Who knew?!

    I drooled over this book, won it, received it, started it, had it liberated by family members twice, and finally got to finish it for myself. What a wonderful tour of history and a favorite foodstuff! It progresses from milking yaks in Bhutan, to a discussion of cow breeds as relates to fat content, to the vagaries of flavor as affected by the cow's diet. There is a lively section detailing the current and historical uses of butter as a remedy, one on the many animal sources around the world, a surprising section on the butter carvings and religious significance (not related to butter worship in Wisconsin), an illustrated section of vintage techniques and tools. There is a brief on the advent of margarine and the fluctuating attitudes toward its use. Just before the wonderful recipe section (Butter's Greatest Hits) there is a marvelous chapter on artisanal butter. For history geeks (self), food geeks (really!), and recipe book hoarders (my sister), this book is a must! I entered and won this in a LibraryThing Giveaway from the publisher.
