What is Brown Butter?

Brown butter is a more complex, deeply toasted version of whole butter. Black & Bolyard precisely cooks and caramelizes grassfed, non-GMO butter from American farms. The milk solids naturally present in the whole butter are browned in the butterfat before being infused and seasoned. Brown butter can replace whole butter anywhere that it is typically used, while its intense depth of flavor should be enjoyed in both savory and sweet recipes.

Brown Butter is an ingredient used by professional chefs around the world to add rich complexity to dishes. Founders Andrew Black and Eric Bolyard are both Chefs who have pioneered making Brown Butter available to cooks across America.

Black and Bolyard Inc. is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Black & Bolyard Brown Butter makes adding incredible flavor and texture to the simplest of dishes a breeze. Their brown butter is easily approachable for the home cook and incredibly efficient for the renowned Chef. Brown butter offers a unique flavor profile that is tough to perfect - it’s not easy to make as proper technique and precision must be applied. I use brown butter on everything from morning oats, to salad dressing, to finishing a ribeye fresh off the grill.

I’m always looking at ways to expand flavor without adding more ingredients. In the kitchen, we roast, reduce, dehydrate, pickle and ferment to unlock the hidden potential of a singular ingredient. Black & Bolyard has done this masterfully with their brown butter. You can taste the quality of the butter and the technique that has gone into the process of slowly and deeply toasting the milk solids. From melting the Red Chili Brown Butter onto a piece of grill-kissed Spanish mackerel, to folding some Fresh Bay Leaf Brown Butter into a pastry cream to fill sweet and savory doughnuts, or even just a spread of the Original on a perfect piece of fresh sourdough, Black & Bolyard is your best chance at achieving maximum flavor.

Black & Bolyard Brown Butter can be utilized right out of the jar in more ways than one could imagine, from the middle of Summer straight through Winter. I use it to add complexity to the flavor of the freshest vegetables or heighten the richness of the simplest seafood. It creates magic with the most humble ingredients, transforming them into a world-class dish.
