    Hi everybody,

    I am a baker and newcomer to the City. I am right now in the process of selecting new purveyors/raw materials for the restaurant that I work for, and cannot find the brands I used to work with in France and Italy. Any hints on distributors for Lescure beurre pâtissier, or beurre d'Isigny.

    Any other suggestions on manufacturers of local, high-fat content, grass-fed butter will be also appreciated.

    Happy Baking!

         Have you tried contacting the companies directly? They should have a website. Otherwise, the Pride of New York campaign might be a good source for information on local dairies. Or the New York State Dairy Association.

    I am using Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter from grass fed cows for home baking.  you can get it at any supermarket. the fat content is 82%, so far gives me the good results than any other store bought butters I 've  tried.
