We are inspired by and named after the Sublime Society of the Beefsteak, an 18th-century London club where lunch was accompanied by songs, speeches and lashings of port. Such things add savour to meals. So does our flavoured butter.
Butter has been smeared when it ought to be spread.
That delicious golden manna has come in for a good deal of flack over the last few years, but the nutritionists have now repented: butter is officially healthy. Healthier by far than the upstart margarine, which is French for ‘pot of plastic’.
And a lot more flavoursome too. Especially when we’re finished with it.
