There’s a first time for everything. And yesterday was the first taste of Irish Buffalo butter.
Thanks to my talented friend Kevin Powell who treated me to a superb lunch of toasted Le Levain bread with Toonsbridge Buffalo butter and some delicious Corleggy soft cheese.
The bread was crusty and perfect from the talented Rossa Crowe who has a stall in Temple Bar market.
Then the butter…….soft and deceptively angelic in colour, it works in devilish pleasure in the mouth.
Toonsbridge in West Cork make superb delights like fresh buffalo mozzarella, ricotta, feta and this heavenly butter. Produced by Toby Simmons of The Real Olive Company and farmer Johnny Lynch who impoted buffalo from Italia to West Cork, it is delicious.
I am of the ‘Would you like some bread with that butter?’ scale of the knife spread and could happily have taken a spoon to this.
Find it in Dublin at Temple Bar Market, but not if I get there first.
