Do you remember last week when I was whining about those hazelnut creme wafers that so rudely deposited dust and disappointment all over me? Do you also remember me saying that I wish just once I could come here on Foodie Find Day and say "have I got one for you this week!" without my trademark sarcasm? Well guess what. It's that week.
HAVE I GOT ONE FOR YOU THIS WEEK! But alas, it has rendered me speechless. It is hands down the best butter I have EVER had. Ever. Ever in life, it is the best, and I defy you to prove me wrong or disagree. You will not find a better butter.
Do you remember that episode of Will and Grace where Grace is going on a date and Will cautions her not to eat the butter without bread...as in eating just a chunk of butter? I was completely disgusted at the thought. As I was at that new popcorn commercial where the father is caught by his family with a unwrapped stick of butter hovering over it about to take a bite. I know better now, and fully understand where these two seemingly misguided souls are coming from. They must have THIS butter.
I will have you know ( just because I'm sure you are wondering if I just bit a chunk off) that I resisted the urge to eat it straight from the package. I used bread. I'm a lady, dammit.
I try so hard not to use "strong" language here, as I removed the "Adult Content" warning in effort to clean up my potty mouth, but....F*ck what you heard. Delitia Parmigiano-Reggiano Butter is the BEST butter around. Plugra? Lurpak? Please. They can't even hold a candle to this stuff.
I'm not even going to attempt to describe it. You have to experience this one for yourself. I will admit it's a little pricey, but you get a decent amount of butter for the seven dollars you have to trade for it. Seven dollars for butter? Surely, I made a mistake, right? In these hard economic times, I couldn't possibly be suggesting that you go out and pick up seven dollar BUTTER?!
Friends, I'm afraid I am, and I'm doing so unapologetically. Don't you deserve a treat for all that penny-pinching, recycling, and general do-gooding you've been doing? I think you do, and I think this it. Actually, I know this it. I found it at our favorite store to blow an entire week's salary--Whole Foods.
Go get some and try like hell not to eat it with a spoon.
