The Butter Eaters

Butter. Cleopatra bathed in it. In "Natural History" (Circa 77 AD), Pliny the Elder calls butter "the most delicate of food among barbarous nations." Abraham served it to visiting angels in Genesis.

Since it is no longer made by shaking milk inside an animal skin, you can buy it in squares or blocks at the supermarket. And you can eat it! It is good for you. Shot this last Saturday in the kitchen.
