  1. beurre noisette

    Beurre noisette, also known as brown butter, is a type of melted butter cooked until the milk solids turn brown while the water in the butter evaporates. It is a traditional ingredient in French cuisine and is used for its deep nutty flavor and rich aroma. The term 'beurre noisette' literally translates to 'hazelnut butter' in French, referring to its nutty characteristics. It can be used in both sweet and savory dishes.


  1. Beurre noisette

    Beurre noisette is frequently used in French pastry production. It can also be used as a warm sauce to accompany many foods, such as winter vegetables, pasta, fish, omelettes, and chicken. Unsalted butter is melted over low heat and allowed to separate into butterfat and milk solids. The milk solids naturally sink to the bottom of the pan and, if left over gentle heat, will begin to brown. As the milk solids reach a toasty hazelnut color, the pan is removed from the heat. Beurre noisette may be used in its liquid state, or cooled to a solid form. It has a nutty flavour and is particularly included in the batters for madeleines and financiers. If beurre noisette is not mixed after preparation but separated in the firm and liquid components, the latter is the type of clarified butter known as ghee in South Asia and samna in the Middle East countries.
