Delicious crunch on toasties?

Use Western Star Spreadable on the outside of your bread for a golden delicious crunch! 

Avoid a "floury" white sauce

At the beginning of a white sauce always cook off the butter and flour over low heat for 1 minute to ensure the finished sauce doesn’t have a “floury” flavour. Remove from the heat before whisking in milk and returning back to the heat to thicken. 

A new BBQ favourite

Stand out at your next barbecue by making a quick basting butter. Combine melted butter with flavours of choice; try chilli, garlic, lime and coriander. Brush over cooked meats or seafood as soon as they come off the barbecue for a mouth-watering flavour kick. 

Traffic light vegetables

A great side dish for kids. Cut zucchini, carrot and red capsicum into thin sticks or rounds (snow peas are great too), then sauté in butter and garlic until tender and fragrant. 

Should I grease my baking tins?

This helps stop food sticking. Brush the tin with melted butter or use some baking paper with a little butter on it to rub around the inside of the tin. 

Delicious slow roasted tomoatoes

Simply slice roma tomatoes in half, lay cut side up on a lined baking tray, season with salt and pepper, and top each tomato with a slice of garlic and a knob of butter. Bake at 140°-150°C for 1-2 hours or until done to your liking. Use in salads, antipasto or simply enjoy on fresh bread! 

Cooking rice by absorption method?

Add a knob of butter to the water for a delicious buttery flavour and separated grains. Especially great served with curries?
