The Perfect Sauce Has Yet to be Discovered
Plugra(R) European-Style Butter unveils 3rd Annual Magnifique Recipe Contest -
"The secret to winning sauces is the use of superior ingredients and techniques that allow those ingredients to shine. The secret ingredient for the richest, creamiest sauces is Plugra European-Style Butter," said Plugra Chef Trip Kadey. "Plugra contains less water than average table butters--lower moisture means higher cakes, flakier pie crusts and croissants, and smoother sauces with a richer flavor profile and full-bodied taste."
To inspire food enthusiasts' creativity, Plugra European-Style Butter offers the following recipe served by Chef
