Maitre D'hotel Butter

“My mother gave me a superb Italian cookbook many, many years ago. It has a great savoury butter recipe. I have given variations for the different butters. Slices of butter can be used to garnish steaks, chops, chicken, fish or vegetables and I have also used it in sandwiches and canapes. And best of all it can be frozen!”
