Sheana and Katrina Davis, the dynamic mother-daughter duo behind the renowned catering company and retail shop The Epicurean Connection, are proud to announce the release of their first cookbook, “Buttermonger.” For almost 30 years, Sheana has been creating delicious butters, and Karina has been helping since she could walk.

Sheana and Karina Davis spent countless hours collaborating on the book. “We have been working on this cookbook for over a year, and it has been a wonderful experience for us as a mother and daughter team,” said Sheana Davis. “We are thrilled to share our butter recipes with the world and hope our readers will enjoy them as much as we do.”

The “Buttermonger” cookbook features more than 40 sweet, savory, and novelty butters for readers to enjoy. The inspiration for the book came from a friend who asked Sheana to create compound butters to pair with her wines. She loved the butters so much that she asked for the recipes, so Sheana started writing them down.

The book walks readers through the history of butter, the process of making fresh butter, cultured butter, and compound variations like Chorizo Butter, Cinnamon Blueberry Butter, Margarita Butter, and butters that taste JUST like the most popular Girl Scout cookies. It also includes the Davises’ favorite serving and pairing suggestions for wine, beer, cocktails, and more.

The Epicurean Connection hosts a butter bar where customers can sample and purchase different compound butter. They also host events and classes at their culinary center in Sonoma devoted to all things butter. With the release of “”Buttermonger””, they hope to inspire readers to use even more varieties of butters in their cooking at home.

The book’s foreword includes witty stories from close companions Ari Weinzweig, Owner and Founder of Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor, MI, and Sid Cook, Master Cheesemaker and Butter Maker at Carr Valley Cheese, a fourth-generation cheese company in Wisconsin.

“If you like to exercise your talents and abilities, you want to begin working with butter using skillful means. “Buttermonger” will set you up beautifully for success.” – Ari Weinzweig, Owner and Founder of Zingerman’s Delicatessen

“”Buttermonger” will take you on that journey of butters, the subtleties in flavor, texture, and mouthfeel.” – Sid Cook, Master Cheese Maker and Butter Maker at Carr Valley Cheese

The “Buttermonger” cookbook is now available on the new website Buttermonger.com. After reading this book, it won’t take long to become a Buttermonger yourself! If you make any recipes, are interested in butter samples for editorial consideration, or have questions, please contact Sheana Davis.
