Why Finishing Butter?

There are a lot of different words for flavored butter...

Infused butter because seasonings and other flavorful ingredients are mixed in delicately to impart maximum flavor.

Finishing butter because flavored butter is typically used right before serving. For example, add a pat of Black Truffle Butter to the top of a warm sirloin steak immediately before eating.

Chef’s butter because professional chefs use flavored butter to simplify a recipe, minimize labor, and ensure a consistent product. Many busy restaurant chefs rely on flavored butter to make soups and sauces.

Compound butter because the technical meaning of “compound” is “a thing that is composed of two or more separate elements; a mixture.” Flavored butter is exactly that!
