Random excellent pairing of the day. If/when you have a nice bottle of Champagne to drink, you can do a LOT worse than whipping up some Momofuku English Muffins with Benton’s bacon fat / bay leaf butter. Say what? The english muffin recipe is great on its own, but when you combine some good butter with some rendered Benton’s bacon fat and steep fresh bay leaves in it before whipping it up into a frenzy of porky, smoky, herbal goodness, you nearly reach muffin butter nirvana. Did you know there was such a place? All it takes to enter is a bottle of vintage Champagne. You’re welcome.
