Buttering Up to my Sourdough
By now most of my dear readers know how much I love sourdough, especially Ann Tan’s naturally leavened sourdough breads in its myriad guises: from focaccia to chocolate swirled loaves to Hainanese tall sandwich breads and a host of others.
I eat them slathered with butter. Hitherto, my favourite butter has been Kerry Gold, an Irish butter that comes from grass-fed cows, but my affections are now being usurped by a new kid on the block.
MOMO Infused Butter
Imagine slathering your sourdough not only with butter but herb-seasoned butter, already pre-portioned in 15g blocks where you can throw caution to the wind and use the whole chunk (cholesterol be damned), or you can use them to flavour a whole host of simple dips and dishes especially in this time of pandemic where we are restricted to the home.
The brainchild of three innovative non-cooks from KL who love butter, and who spent three months in R&D foisting their formulations on friends, family and anyone else willing to be guinea pigs, MOMO Infused Butter was finally launched in February of this year (2021). The product was so well received that it is now coming to Ipoh!
Ann Tan, the home baker known for her innovative sourdough breads (see this article) will become the distributor for the MOMO herb butters in Ipoh.
It’s a marriage made in heaven, Ann’s delectable sourdough breads and these divine herb butters.
Currently only four flavours are available:
The Classic : Rosemary and thyme.
Tuscan: Sun-dried tomatoes, parmesan, and basil.
Curry: Curry powder, turmeric, shallots, daun kesum, chili, and kantan.
Kampung: Daun kesum, kantan, shallots, and kaffir lime leaves.
But spreading on bread is not the only thing you can do with the butters. The trio created a highlight section called “Cuisines” on their Instagram page. In that highlight, they have videos suggesting how to use their butter in cooking.
You could just heat them up and pour them over your salmon as a sauce, incorporate them into a curry, make soup out of them, put them in a sandwich, or even enjoy them as a dipping sauce, as examples.
Do hurry and pre-order with Ann now as she already has a long list of pre-orders.
