Butter: A Celebration is a joyous immersion in all things butter, revelling in its alchemical power to transform almost any dish, from good to transcendent. Olivia Potts takes us on a grand tour of this ingredient and its many varied applications.

Swirled into hot sugar to create a silken, smoky caramel, or browned until nutty and speckled before being folded through cake batter or buttercream. Dotted on to vegetables before roasting or braising, stirred through rice after cooking. Butter won’t just transform your individual dishes, it will transform your way of cooking. Full of history, anecdotes and delicious dishes, this is a book to be savoured for its wonderful writing as well as for its irresistible recipes.

‘This is, quite frankly, my dream book. Buttery bliss from cover to cover’ Nigella Lawson

‘The last word on butter. Everyone who cooks needs this book’ Diana Henry
