cold butter must go
November 30, 2009
So I have a question.
Why do restaurants serve cold butter? What is cold butter good for? Other than flinging onto the ceiling?
Okay, I guess that’s three questions, technically.
I mean, I can see that getting warm butter out of those little butter packets would be a little slimier. But isn’t working with slimy butter better than trying to smear cold butter onto a roll? And let’s say we’re talking fancy restaurant here, where they would never give you butter in a little packet–why are those little butter balls cold? I don’t have time to wait for the butter to thaw. My REAL food is coming soon, and I need to get these rolls eaten NOW.
I’m telling you. No cold butter. Cold butter must go.
