Can too much butter be a bad thing?
Sometimes you have to go above and beyond the call of duty. I know I said I would attempt to stop partaking in my one-man peace corps, but recently I had very little choice but to help bring harmony to the world.
I was at a breakfast meeting at The Wolseley and it would have been rude of me not to have eaten something. So I chose a pain au raisin. It was exceptionally good - in fact rather too good. It was a bit too airy and light - demonstrating a judicious use of butter. If I'm honest, I thought it a bit girly. Although, I reckon there were more calories in it than half the waifs in the restaurant eat in a year.
This was a good specimen but I've decided I like mine to have a bit more density than the buttery fluffiness (that does sound good though, doesn't it?) on offer. It was worth the calories though.
Apologies for the lack of a poor quality photo. I didn't feel comfortable explaining to my client why I was taking a picture of my plate.
