Bordier Espelette Chilli Butter is made from Espelette chillies harvested from the Basque Country in Southwestern France. Espellete Chilli Butter compliments the chillies medium heat and vibrant, smoky taste with a smooth and creamy flavour.
Bordier Espelette Chilli Butter is the perfect base for both sweet and savoury recipes, pairing perfectly with red meat as well as chocolate desserts.
Bordier Espelette Chilli Butter has a smooth consistency and bright flavour that obtains its qualities from the luscious pastures the cows graze on, which changes as the seasons do.
Bordier Espelette Chilli Butter is so wonderful because of the unique method of churning. Le Beurre Bordier is the last artisan butter maker in France to still use a traditional wooden teak paddles known as the Malaxeur to knead the butter gently. This can last for up to 30 minutes depending on the season. The result is a butter with a depth of flavour and an amazingly smooth texture.
Chef's tip for Bordier Butter: It is best to combine the butter and other ingredients using a fork in a stainless mixing bowl.
