The team behind Epicurean Butter

John & Janey Hubschman | Co-Founders of Epicurean Butter

“Presenting our line of sweet and savory butters to potential customers is so much fun. I love hearing how Epicurean Butter has made butter better. Sharing the endless ways our butters can be used to enhance steaks, seafood and vegetables is the most enjoyable part of my job.

Though I love each and every one of our finishing butters, shrimp bathed in the Lemon Garlic Herb butter served over pasta is one of my favorites when I need a quick preparation meal.  This time of year I love a bit of Cinnamon Brown Sugar butter in a warm sweet potato.”
Anna McCoy | Office Manager & Sales Support

“I process all of the orders, arrange trucking logistics and take care of all of the day to day tasks that keep Epicurean Butter running smoothly.  

My favorite flavor is the Maple Syrup butter, as it's the perfect no drip addition to pancakes and so yummy on a grilled cheese with sharp cheddar and bacon.”

Carlos Garcia | Plant Manager

“As plant manager, my role is to make sure we produce and deliver every ounce of butter on time and with good quality. 

My favorite Butter is Chili Lime on corn on the cob.  I apply it directly to the corn and wrap the cob with aluminum foil and grill it on Medium high for about 10 minutes.”

Kamana Basnet | Quality Manager & SQF Practitioner

“My favorite butter is the Organic Cocoa Coconut. I am responsible for quality and food safety.”

Linda Whittington | Accounting/Finance Manager 

“My favorite butter is Chili Lime which I use on vegetables, egg dishes and quesadillas.”

Laura Shinefield | Sales Manager

“My favorite butter is White Truffle used on pizza dough in place of sauce. I spread it on the unbaked crust, top with a little mozzarella and mushrooms, bake it in a hot oven for 10 minutes.

My role is finding butter business opportunities and taking care of existing customers.”
