I am dancing on LAVENDER clouds wearing slippers of VANILLA as ROSE PETALS fall from the sky onto the NUTMEG forest.
This beauty will take you straight to the garden! Filled with delights of rose, vanilla, lavender and nutmeg, you may find yourself transported to a place of wonder.
Professor TUMERIC, slender as a stick of CINNAMON always sported a LEMON yellow tie that his HONEY, SAFFRON loved most.
One lovely combination of ingredients that may surprise you, especially when used in a savory dish.
I laughed with CARDAMOM when he told me CINNAMON made and ANISE of himself professing love for his HONEY in the ORANGE grove.
This magical flavor combination will find you in an exotic place with a smile on your face! Wonderful with chicken, believe it or not.
As Doc Holliday sat for his 3pm breakfast, the fragrance of MOLASSES, MAPLE, CLOVES, CINNAMON and VANILLA reminded him of Old Overholt. And, the choice was clear; BOURBON over ORANGE juice.
This is one of the #1 choices for buttered coffee at our Butter Bar!

Grandpa and I used to adore a stroll thru his ROSEMARY garden. Holding my hand, he would give me his SAGE advice; I would just smile.
One of Bella's top sellers! Rosemary is nicely accompanied by its friend Sage, garlic and sea salt. It is a pleasure to inhale when it meets with the heat of a skillet! Used in one of our restaurants #1 most ordered item: Rosemary's Sage grilled cheese!
Daydreaming of the fields she once danced in, ROSEMARY reached for the HERBS-DE-PROVENCE, which she used with GARLIC all the THYME.
This delightful countryside stroll for the taste buds will have you conjuring up all kinds of invitations to your table.
My Auntie's kitty named PAPRIKA was a spicy sort! She pulled GARLIC and ONIONS from the garden to hide beneath the LIME tree.
Ever inspiring, Pablo Neruda gets attached to this deep, complex butter because his use of human language always finds my soul.
"Under the earth
and when your clumsy
green stem appeared,
and your leaves were born
in the garden"
TRUFFLE, the unmistakable scent that dwells in the palate of my soul, and in the nostrils of my pet pig.....Mr. GARLIC is always blissful.
The absolute allure of truffles finds its way far, far back in culinary history. It was as relevant in the food lovers soul in ancient Egypt as it is now. A true sensual delight.
"Come on an evening CAPER with me," he whispered (with GARLIC breath) as we walked arm in arm down TARRAGON Lane under the moon's LEMON light.
Whether you like scrambled eggs, fish, chicken or just plain noodles, this selection will take you to a new room in your mind's kitchen.
Watch for special seasonal releases, limited editions as well as our butter of the month club! Because flavor is paramount, we have chosen packaging that best maintains the integrity and nuances of our cultured butter.
We love to hear about your experience with our butter. Bella butter stories are the best! What did you make, how did you use it, was it a gift, how was it received, how big was your smile? What did you love about Bella La Crema?
Bella La Crema is amazing! We feel so fortunate to have celebrated Thanksgiving here. They opened their doors for a community dinner, so aside from enjoying an amazing inspired meal, we also got to meet some wonderful people from our new town.
The interior of the restaurant and market is charming; it feels more european than American with it's intimate rooms and settings. Shauna's menu absolutely blew us away; it is French-inspired cooking and was tremendous. I wish I'd taken a photo of the menu to remember the details of everything we ate but but I didn't- everything was impeccable. And as someone currently eating low!-carb there was still so much for me to enjoy. The rosemary-sage buttermilk roasted turkey was (sorry mom) the best turkey I've eaten. I went back for seconds and thirds of the "ode to neruda" savoy cabbage with haricots verts, onions and baby portabella mushrooms. The carmelized brussel sprouts (I can't recall what they were served with) were also impeccable. Hubby loved the mashed potatoes, buttermilk bread, and the apple-cherry gluten-free pie and ice cream. And of course we both enjoyed their butter! OMG so good. I will be in to just buy butter soon. In fact I wish I'd brought some home for my bulletproof coffee but this just gives me reason to stop back in.
We met fantastic people and had a tremendous time. Please stop in to see them for breakfast, lunch or dinner! YELP.
"Hey Shauna, I just made French toast for me and my daughter. The butter (Song of India) is amazing! The fragrance of it heating up in the skillet...OMG! Absolutely delicious!"
"The taste and flavors are smooth and exotic, and taste exactly like its name." (Monet's Garden, Song of India, Truffle Trouble)
It was a foodie field trip to this butter bar! Organic, fresh hand packed butter for sale here. There are several savory and sweet butter flavors, each with a unique combo of spices/flavor profiles.
We purchased Song of India and Holliday's Bourbon. We wanted to buy more but some flavors were out of stock (we went on a Saturday). Now that we've sampled several butters we'll call ahead to place an order for pickup.
Cultured butter is produced by allowing bacteria to ferment the sugars in cream prior to churning it into butter. This provides a tart, tangy, and complex flavor. Cultured butter was the predominant type of butter prior to refrigeration and pasteurization.
A simple sweet cream butter can be made in less than an hour. Our butter takes up to two days to make. We think it's worth it!
