Beillevaire Barrate Butters
Excellence, the Traditional Way
Raw milk butters made with a traditional wooden churn to preserve both taste and supple texture. From the churn to your fridge, each oval bar remains a beautiful yellow color with delicate aromas.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Beillevaire’s raw milk butters come from the cream of their local partner farms. The milk is allowed to mature for up to 48 hours before an hour of wooden churning. From there, the butter is hand-shaped into their signature ovals.
Doux – The unsalted version of this raw milk butter, with all of its fine, delicate aromas intact. (on-hand)
Crunchy Demi-Sel – A variation on the Demi-Sel Butter, with additional large crystals of salt from the Island of Noirmoutier. (for pre-order)
Smoked Paprika Butter – A vibrant orange-colored butter, thanks to the addition of smoked paprika from the red peppers of the Vera region of Spain. It carries a hint of the beechwood on which these peppers were dried, smoked, and crushed. (for pre-order)
Peppers of the World Butter – The punch of flavor in this butter comes from the addition of Olivier Roellinger’s Poivre des Mondes pepper mix, a blend of peppercorns from different parts of the world. (for pre-order)
Seaweed Butter – A butter with salty, nutty flavors thanks to salt from the Island of Noirmoutier and shredded bits of Dulse and sea lettuce — two delicious varieties of seaweed. (for pre-order)
Espelette Chili – A butter with a kick. Spicy colored notes of Espelette Chili brings out the flavor of salted butter and gives off an unmistakable smoky aroma (for pre-order)
PREPARATION OR PAIRINGS
From baking to spreading on toast, raw milk butter showcases the best flavors of the Loire region. We like to sample the entire collection with Makati Shangri-La’s fresh-baked breads, especially their baguettes and gigantic sourdough loaves! Doux bars add a particular nuttiness to your baked goods. The Demi-Sel bars are especially delicious atop fresh-cooked steak. We recommend the Seaweed bar for your every seafood need, from basting grilled fish to making a finishing touch for whole seafood platters. The smoky flavor of the Smoked Paprika bar brings out the best in white meat and roasted vegetables alike. And the Peppers of the World bar makes a great enhancer for goat cheese salads and next to anything that needs a peppery kick!
ONE OF THE LAST BASTIONS OF CENTURIES-OLD TRADITION
Beillevaire is one of the last French creameries that still uses the wooden churn and then hand-molds their butter into their signature oval shapes. A child of the Loire, Pascal Beillevaire strives to showcase the greatest qualities of the region and partners with only the best producers to ensure that his butters not only take their buyers to new culinary heights, but also showcase the breadth of French cultivation and tradition.
