March Saveur: The Beauty of Butter

Along with reviving our recaps of newspaper food sections we're also bringing back our monthly roundups of the best food mags, so you'll know what's really worth seeking out each month.

The March Saveur is a celebration of everything great about butter, with tempting recipes for classic Chicken Kiev, crumbly Hungarian shortbread, and glistening butterscotch sauce. There's even a recipe for making butter at home.

Don't miss the roundup of 30 favorite butters – there are new discoveries to be made here of hard-to-find foreign brands, but also some available in most large supermarkets, like Plugrá and Horizon Organic European Style Butter.

But it was the pictorial roundup of nine favorite butter pairings that most pulled our trigger. We immediately scrambled for the simple satisfaction of saltine crackers and a smear. And tonight's dinner is definitely going to include warm baked acorn squash, its sweetness matched with a generous golden pat of melting butter.

What's your favorite way to use butter?
