You may find it difficult to get your hands on our Lewis Road Artisan butter and for that we (very politely of course) make no apologies. You see Lewis Road butter is lovingly hand crafted in small quantities using locally sourced cream in New Zealand.
Thankfully, we here at eat the kiwi are here to give you a stroke of good fortune so that you can come across this delicate roll of velvet gold, you’ll soon discover why they've gone to such great effort.
Firstly, you’ll notice it has a deeper yellow hue compared to most European ‘equivalents’. This is due to the bounty of fresh pasture our New Zealand dairy cows feast on all year round, instead of eating grain. Lucky them means lucky us.
Once you taste it you’ll be overcome by how incredibly rich and creamy it is. This is due to the painstaking process that produces a much lower water content than even our premium range. Whilst most of the batches end up in the kitchens of New Zealand’s leading chefs, we’re able to share some stock with a few of our favourite delicatessens.
Track it down and you’ll be faced with a most sought-after conundrum. To cook with, or to spread?
