The 2015 best butter and dairy spread category entries present innovative new flavours and modern fusion updates to traditional classics.
For cooking convenience, Aurivo Consumer Foods’ Connacht Gold butter comes with a softer, easy-to-use formula while Plugra unsalted butter is made with a slow-churned process to ensure superior results in sauces, pastries and dishes.
Cross–over hybrids lead innovation in the category, such as Dutch Farms’ Greek yogurt butter as a healthy substitute for all cooking, Epicurean Dairy’s maple syrup butter to use on waffles or pancakes and Roussas Dairy’s spreadable feta cheese and yogurt fusion as a new version of this old classic, offering versatility and a healthier option.
Original flavours and artisanal products inspired by professional culinary traditions are on the rise with Amul’s garlic and herb buttery spread that enhances dishes, Abernethy Butter’s Dulse Irish seaweed butter with coastal inspiration and Samba Flavor’s wine-infused ChimiButter, which displays a richness and smoky depth of flavour.
