What is compound butter?

Compound butter is unsalted butter that has been softened and had various flavourings and spices added. It can be saved in the fridge in a roll and have a slice cut off each time you need it.

Common compound butters include garlic butter, parsley butter, and spiced butter.

What’s the difference between a t-bone and a baby t-bone?

You can see the ‘T’ of the t-bone in the baby t-bone photo below. The baby T is the bone with the sirloin, and it is delicious. The bone adds so much flavour, but the Baby Tbone is smaller and good for all appetites.
