Have flavored butter questions? We've got answers

The Brand

Epicurean is the quality of having a luxurious and indulgent taste in food or drink. We thought it was the perfect name for our high-quality, great-tasting butter.

Epicurean Butter began in 2004 when our founder, Chef John Hubschman, and his wife, Janey, decided to help people create restaurant-quality meals in the comfort of their own homes. Read more about how Epicurean Butter began here.

Epicurean Butter's new headquarters and manufacturing facility is in Thornton, CO, just north of Denver.

The butter

Epicurean Butter is butter blended with fresh herbs, spices, and other ingredients. It's flavored butter (aka compound butter) that makes everything taste better without more effort.

Sauté, cook, bake, and finish with Epicurean Butter. Use it just like regular butter. Check out our easy recipes for ways to use Epicurean Butter.

Epicurean Butter helps cooks make great-tasting food with ease. It shortens grocery lists and saves time in the kitchen (no more chopping or measuring out herbs/spices!).

Flavored butter combines butter with herbs, spices, and other real ingredients to create a specific flavor. Professional chefs use flavored butter to simplify a recipe, minimize labor, and ensure a consistent product. Flavored butter is also known as compound butter or chef's butter.

The technical meaning of compound is "a thing composed of two or more separate elements; a mixture." Compound butter is exactly that - a mixture of butter and other real ingredients. Compound butter is also known as flavored butter or chef's butter.

Professional chefs use flavored butter to simplify a recipe, minimize labor, and ensure a consistent product. Many busy restaurant chefs rely on chef's butter to make soups and sauces. Chef's butter is also known as flavored butter or compound butter.

European-style butter is churned longer to achieve at least 82% butterfat, making it richer and creamier.
