Product Feature: Epicurean Black Truffle Butter

Starting this fall I’m on a mission to find specialty food makers — condiment companies in particular — in an effort to build my new blogger-brand network and marketing company (lots of details to come). My goal is for Saucy Dipper to become THE hub for condiment enthusiasts.

My first partner? Epicurean Butter in Federal Heights, just north of Denver. This family-run business is as sweet as they come. Actually, they’re a bit savory, too.

Epicurean Butter specializes in flavor-infused, chef-quality finishing butters (also called compound butters). They were the first to bring compound butter to the consumer market, and they have one of the most popular compound butters on the market today: Black Truffle Butter.

You Heard Me. Black Truffle Butter.

Nothing but grade AA butter and Italian black truffles in this bad boy. The butter is chock full of the truffles, too. I could see the black pieces before even opening the package.

I tried the butter on a rib eye, as recommended by creator Chef John Hubschman. I don’t have to tell you it was delicious, but I will. Delicious.

My husband only added a touch of salt before grilling the meat. From there we topped the steak with a tablespoon (or so) of butter and watched it melt into perfection.

About Finishing Butters

Before meeting the folks at Epicurean Butter I was new to the concept of compound butter. I learned that you don’t cook with it. You finish a dish with it. Hence the name “finishing butter.”

Finishing butters make your life easier. I love sauce (obviously) and high-impact flavors, but I’m a low-maintenance finishing butters from epicurean buttercook. I much prefer simple recipes to complicated processes. That makes Epicurean Butter products ideal for me. 

Epicurean Butter makes 14 different flavors. Giving me (and you) limitless opportunities! I’m thinking White Truffle Butter with pasta and shrimp, Orange Honey Butter on French toast, and Caramel Sea Salt on popcorn. And that’s just the start. You can find more serving suggestions and a list of retailers that carry the product on the company’s site.

Have you used infused butters to finish a dish? 



  1. Black truffle butter on a steak is amazing. My favorite flavor of Epicurean Butter is Tomato Chipotle, it’s great on corn, grilled cheese and to finish shrimp and grits.

  2. Love, love, love this butter! There sweet butters make a “special” breakfast within seconds when put on bagels, pancakes, and muffins.

  3. Many thanks for featuring Epicurean Butter on your blog. You have described our product line perfectly and my mouth watered reading your description of the black truffle butter. Support from fine food enthusiasts like yourself mean so much to us. Thank you for your kind words.

  4. I have so come to depend on Epicurean Butter in my cooking, it just adds so much to my meals, in fact… I just traveled to visit my son in Tokyo and took some frozen butters with me! We cooked mushroom omlettes using garlic butter and oh my where they good, and filled the house with love and the smell of good food!! I left them with several other flavors and they are so happy to have them!!

    Thanks Epicurean for making me a better cook!! 🙂

  5. I love the Epicurean black truffle butter! With some fresh fettuccine, black pepper and shaved parmesan. Simple but delicious.

  6. These butters are my go-to ingredients for all my cooking. I take them on my camping trips – and every meal becomes gourmet! Nothing like a freshly-caught trout with roasted garlic herb butter… mmmmmm! delicious!
