Buttermilk, it’s not just for breakfast anymore. One of buttermilk’s biggest promoters, Vermont-based farmer Diane St. Clair, recently published The Animal Farm Buttermilk Cookbook showcasing a variety of recipes that use the fresh tangy elixir. On her book tour St. Clair was introduced to Chef Nate Whiting from Tristan, sparking a dinner that pays homage to creamy buttermilk. “We were really inspired by Diane and her cookbook ... and getting re-inspired about buttermilk,” Whiting says. “We’ll be adapting a few of her recipes. We really want to use the components of her recipes straight from the book, but the techniques have been piecemealed together.” The dinner will feature dishes like buttermilk spaghetti carbonara, buttermilk cheesecake, and slow-braised, milk-fed veal breast. Diners will also receive a copy of St. Clair’s cookbook.
