After last week's Julia Child Birthday Contest, we have butter on the brain. Flaky puff pastry, rich brioche, and melting butter on bread - the pleasures of good butter, eaten in moderation, are innumerable.
We were browsing through online gourmet food shops, looking at the international butters available from stores like iGourmet and Marky's. Sometimes it's hard to find artisan butters (and cheeses, wines, and other foods, for that matter) in some regions of the country.
We're curious - do you ever buy perishable foods like butter or ice cream from artisan shops online?
